County Community Health Survey Report released

The Kenosha County Health Department, in partnership with Aurora Health Care, the Center for Urban Population Health Research and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin have released the results of their 2011 Kenosha County Community Health Survey Report. The survey report supplements a prior community health assessment survey conducted in 2008 with updated data and provides analysis of trends over time.

“This recent survey provides valuable health data that will help guide community organizations as they plan and implement programs and services for our residents to meet the most pressing health needs of our community,” Cynthia Johnson, Kenosha County Health Department Director, said.

The survey was conducted between December, 2011 and January, 2012 with about 400 area residents interviewed by telephone. This research provides valuable behavioral health data on issues such as access to health care, tobacco use, alcohol use, diet, physical activity, cancer prevention, heart health, injury prevention, immunizations, communicable diseases, mental health and chronic disease.

Notable findings in the report include:

  • An increase percentage of respondents who reported their health as fair to poor (up from 12% in 2003 to 19% in 2011).
  • An increased percentage of respondents 18 years and older reporting no current personal health care insurance (up from 8% in 2003 to 15% in 2011).

The report was commissioned by Aurora Health Care and prepared by JKV Research, LLC in partnership with the Kenosha County Health Department, the Center for Urban Population Health and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.
