Missouri County-Level Health Factors

The Missouri Public Health Management System (MOPHIMS) County-Level Study surveys approximately 50,000 Missouri residents to estimate health-related measures throughout the state. Questionnaires gauge behavioral risk factors related to health and document participants’ reports of chronic disease diagnoses.

This month, MCDC’s partners at the Missouri Spatial Data Information Service (MSDIS) present county-level maps showing results of the 2016 study for diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney disease.

Missouri Census Data Center frequently works with MSDIS on mapping and data projects. MSDIS is a spatial data retrieval and archival system offering many mapping resources, primarily focused on the state of Missouri.
