Description

This point map shows the locations of Creating Health Places interventions. Creating Healthy Places to Live Work and Play (CHP2LWP) is a joint five year grant (October 2010 – October 2015) of New York State Department of Health’s Division of Chronic Disease Prevention and Division of Nutrition. The Purpose of the initiative is to implement community level interventions to promote healthy lifestyles to prevent obesity and type 2 diabetes. Twenty-two communities across New York State are funded to carry out this initiative. From a list of 18 policy, systems and environmental interventions, community contractors selected a minimum four to implement. The 18 interventions are grouped into five, broad activity categories. The activities include two that are related to increasing opportunities for physical activity, two that address improving nutrition, and one that addresses both physical activity and nutrition.

Notes
Notes
This dataset contains information on the number of interventions being implemented, the type of intervention, the city, and zip code where the intervention is occurring and a geocoded street address which enables users to map each intervention and overlay these data with U.S. Census data to obtain reach and socioeconomic status information related to communities impacted by the Creating Healthy Places to Live Work and Play initiative
Disclaimers
Limitations
The information in this dataset is limited to the 22 contractors and 21 counties funded through the Creating Healthy Places to Live Work and Play Initiative. Some interventions were not selected by any of the contractors, and therefore will not be represented in this dataset. In instances where an exact intervention location could not be determined, the geocoded location was interpolated or approximated based on the street, postcode or city centroid.
