Reports
The Child and Family Health Services (CFHS) program collects health related information in Cuyahoga County to help explain the health of our community and also to help create programs to improve healthy behaviors and access to care.

The Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) is used to gather information from middle school and high school students in Cuyahoga County about how they are feeling and what they are doing on a daily basis that impacts their health.  The YRBS is conducted by the Prevention Research Center for Healthy Neighborhoods at Case Western Reserve University.

CFHS has produced an Indicators Report that provides health-related information by neighborhood.  Below are links to these latest reports.
