Reinforced Commitment to Health and Equity
In light of the recent presidential election, Get Healthy San Mateo County remains committed to our vision: building healthy, equitable communities where all residents – regardless of income, race/ethnicity, age, ability, immigration status, sexual orientation, or gender – have the opportunity to reach their full potential. As we look to the future, we know that it is only with our strong partners like you that we will be able to improve health for those who need it most. Thank you for all that you do for our community – we look forward to continuing our work together to build healthy, equitable communities.
Play with New Data
Get Healthy San Mateo County has just expanded our data portal with more social, environmental, economic, and health data! You can now map indicators by city and census tract, as well as break down county-level data by race/ethnicity, educational attainment, poverty, and/or income. Be sure to check out all the new indicators we’ve added to the mix using interactive maps and charts to explore health equity in San Mateo County, such as jobs-housing fit, access to parks, income inequality, and poverty. You can explore which city has the best ratio of low-wage jobs to affordable housing (spoiler alert: East Palo Alto) or which city has the highest percentage of active transportation commuters (Colma with 24%), and much more. Happy data-ing!
