Description

Each dwelling visited by the HNP is classified into one of three periods based on the year it was built: before 1950 (“pre-1950”), built 1950-1978, or built after 1978. These periods relate to the general age of the housing. Older housing can present health and safety hazards to their residents. In addition, these groupings coincide with the presence of lead in paint, a health hazard for young children.
For dwellings visited by the Clinton County HNP, this chart displays the percent of homes built in each period by funding cycle. For example, the first set of bars shows the percent of dwellings that were built before 1950 during each of the 3 funding cycles. We can see that Clinton County has increased the percent of the oldest homes from about 10% in the first funding cycle to almost 30% during the current funding cycle. Looking at the orange bars, we see that during the current funding cycle, Clinton County’s HNP has visited about the same percentage of homes built in each time period.
The counties participating in the Healthy Neighborhoods Program can create this type of chart to view trends in how they are targeting their visits. For example, if a county wants to reach older homes, it may want to refocus its efforts on communities with older housing stock. The "About" tab contains additional details concerning this dataset.
