CRCAIH Methodology Core: Tracking Health over Time and Geography
The CRCAIH Methodology Core assessed the health and health disparities by county in South Dakota, North Dakota, and Minnesota, over the 5 years before CRCAIH was implemented. This was done to create the framework to assess the impact of CRCAIH over the next several years. Health indicators are measured within the following domains: Health Outcomes, Health Behaviors, and Social Economic Factors, and compiled to calculate a Health Index. The following map shows the status of the Health Index in 2012. Blue colors indicate a more positive health index.
