Health Indicator Profiles of Santa Barbara County

The 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment health profile sections describe 13 different health-related outcomes and risk factors and highlight needs among groups facing health disparities. Health Indicator Profiles are in three groups:

  1. Exceeding HP 2020 targets
  2. Below HP 2020 targets
  3. HP 2020 target not available

Within each profile, we have included data tables, maps, and a chart that displays the relationship between the indicator and other important health factors, including health outcomes, health behaviors, social and economic factors, and clinical care.

We used the County Health Rankings model to select health factors proven to provide a comprehensive view of the health of a community. One’s health is determined by much more than having access to a doctor, and the County Health Rankings model estimates what portion of one’s health comes from which factors.
