Sinai Community Health Survey 2.0
With generous support from The Chicago Community Trust, the Sinai Urban Health Institute conducted the Sinai Community Health Survey 2.0 to provide critical data on the health outcomes and related health factors in nine Chicago neighborhoods. First implemented in 2002, the Sinai Community Health Survey is still the largest community-driven face-to-face health survey ever conducted in Chicago.
The Sinai Community Health Survey 2.0 included a representative sample of adults (18 years and older) and children (0-12 years) living in the communities of Chicago Lawn, Gage Park, Hermosa, Humboldt Park, North Lawndale, Norwood Park, South Lawndale, West Englewood, and West-West Town (west of Western Avenue).
The data provided by the original Sinai Community Health Survey (2002) not only brought attention to striking health disparities within our city, but also led to numerous interventions addressing issues ranging from obesity to diabetes to smoking. We expect that the findings of the Sinai Survey 2.0 will have the same positive impact.
Findings from the Sinai Survey 2.0, including 16 Adult Health Snapshots, can be found in the report, “Community Health Counts: Sinai Community Health Survey 2.0.” The Health Snapshots are also available individually.
Community Health Profiles were created using Sinai Survey 2.0 data to provide an overview of health within each surveyed community. Health profiles are available for every community that was surveyed. See the full listing of health profiles for download here.
Community Health Infographics created using Sinai Survey 2.0 data are also available for every community area that was surveyed. See the full listing of infographics for download here.
Community Health Videos were created using Sinai Survey 2.0 data along with insights from community residents. Access the videos here.
Chicago Health Atlas has 40 Sinai Survey 2.0 indicators available by community area. See the indicators here.
Child Health Snapshots focus on health outcomes among children aged 0 to 12 years living in surveyed communities. Child Health Snapshots are available for download here.
Additional information and publications will be posted as they become available.
