About the Survey

Since 2007, the Community Health Survey has been conducted every 3 years by Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment. In 2016, a random sample of 8,500 households were selected to complete the survey with 2,080 adult residents responding. The aggregated results provide local-level data on health status, health behaviors, and health concerns and needs of Weld County residents. This survey is part of the Health Department’s continuous effort to understand residents' health status and encourage ongoing community dialogue about health issues and concerns through the collection of information and data.

The Weld Community Health Survey was done in partnership(PDF, 45KB) with other organizations and members of the community. 

This survey was funded by Weld County Government. Funding from the United Way of Weld County also partially supported the 2016 survey process.  Finally, many thanks goes to the residents who completed the survey. Without them, this report would not be possible.
