Description

This layered map shows the locations of Creating Healthy Places interventions that are targeted towards children and the percentage of students (elementary, middle, and high school) who are obese (95th percentile or higher) by county (source: Student Weight Status Category Reporting System). The purpose of the Creating Healthy Places initiative is to implement community level interventions to promote healthy lifestyles to prevent obesity and type 2 diabetes. The lighter shaded counties have a lower percentage of obese students. The darker shaded counties have a higher percentage of obese students. This map can help identify areas that could benefit from more community level and school level interventions like the ones implemented through the Creating Healthy Places Initiative. The "About" tab contains additional details concerning this dataset.
