Abstract:

The 1980s opened a discussion of the varying nature of health in different segments of the United States. Falling under the rubric of "health disparities" a great deal of research has been published demonstrating the substanad differences in health status between groups within a population. The causes of health disparities are varied and not always clear but most researchers agree that disparities are a reflection of social and economic inequities and political injustice. One of the obscales to addressing disparities is the lack of meaningful local health data. aspecially for vulnerable populations. which is often nonexistent despite being a critical factor for informing health programs and policies or the local local level.

This book describes how a landmork health survey in Chicago generated dramatic data that are allowing investigators throughout the city to move from data to action and from observation to intervention It provides a new model for combaating health disparities that includes the collection of local health information the genume engagement of community members and organizations and the implementation of interventions for sustainable change Eight case studies are provided to illustrate just how researchers worked with communities to identify and address health problems including smoking obesity, asthma, and diabetes In providing a detated description of how the community-focused collection and analysis of health data can serve as an impetus for improved well-being. Urban Health is an invaluable resource for researchers community groups students and professionals. --Résumé de l'éditeur.
