Minnesota County and City Profiles

Demographic characteristics and socioeconomic status can influence a person's health behaviors, affect access to health care, and indicate an increased likelihood of certain health conditions. Stratis Health has developed the Culture Care Connection County and City Profiles to assist health care organizations in learning more about the characteristics of the communities they serve so they can develop the culturally sensitive services and processes necessary to support delivery of equitable and effective health care.

The quantitative data in the county profiles, accessed through the map and list below, describe the characteristics of individual counties and cities, their economic development region, Minnesota statewide, and the nation. Each report contains data on:

  • Demographics: age, gender, race, foreign born
  • Socio-economic status: income, education, and occupation
  • Health status data: birth rate and morbidity

Review your county and city profiles to identify topics that may be of importance to your organization. For example, if your profile indicates a rise in foreign-born populations, your organization might evaluate whether it could improve its care delivery by learning how to effectively communicate with individuals of limited English proficiency.

You can apply the information from the profiles to further implement Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards in your organization. The county and city profiles are also valuable if your organization is using less formal approaches to providing culturally sensitive services and if you are interested in learning more about health disparities in your area.

Additional Data Reports for Counties

Minnesota County Health Rankings. Each county receives a summary rank for its health outcomes and health factors and for the four different types of health factors: health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, and the physical environment. Developed by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.

Healthy Communities Assessment Tool (HCAT). In Hennepin county, the Minneapolis Health Department developed HCAT, an online tool that provides information on over 40 physical, social, and economic conditions of community health. You can look at individual Minneapolis neighborhoods and how they compare in rankings of the core indicators from the Healthy Communities Index (HCI).
