Health of Houston Survey 2010 tells it like it is – like never before.

HOUSTON (June 7, 2012) –  Results of the first Health of Houston Survey are in, and the data are stunning. Designed for maximum public use, all results and reports are freely available at www.hhs2010.net. Stephen Linder, Ph.D. and his team at the Institute for Health Policy with the University of Texas School of Public Health worked diligently to design, administer and analyze this first-of-its-kind survey of Houston’s health. The Houston Endowment provided funding for the effort.   

With respondents from more than 5,000 randomly selected households, the Health of Houston Survey is the area’s most extensive health survey, assembling facts on health status, health care and lifestyle, as well as on social, economic and neighborhood risk factors.   

These data are essential for non-profit, public and private health service organizations as they plan their programs and evaluate their successes. The Charities encourages extensive use of this remarkable new resource. Read more about the survey including a summary of key findings here.

Through research-informed grantmaking to Texas nonprofits, St. Luke's Episcopal Health Charities, a separate component of St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System, improves community health and reduces health disparities.  Our Center for Community-Based Research is dedicated to community-based participatory research practices that foster informed action, collaboration and empowerment for the medically underserved and other vulnerable populations.
