Methodology Notes

The National Profile of Local Health Departments study is designed to develop a comprehensive and accurate description of local health department infrastructure and practice. For the National Profile of Local Health Departments study, National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) distributes an extensive questionnaire to every local health department (LHD) in the U.S. Hawaii and Rhode Island were excluded from the study, because state health departments operate on behalf of local public health and have no sub-state units. LHD is defined as “an administrative or service unit of local or state government concerned with health, and carrying some responsibility for the health of a jurisdiction smaller than the state.” Community-based organizations (CBOs) include local health departments, tribal health services, nongovernmental organizations, and multiple State agencies.
