- Access social, health and demographic data by topic or geographic location within Loudoun County.
- Find data broken down by age, gender, and race/ethnicity, where available.
- View multiple health indicators at once, or a single indicator across multiple locations, including by zip code, county or census tract.
- Find similar data for other Virginia jurisdictions Build customized reports and maps on health topics of interest.
Community Health Assessment
Loudoun County uses the National Association for County and City Health Official's Mobilizing for Action through Planning and Partnership (MAPP) tool to assess community health and develop a plan for improvement. Facilitated by public health leaders, this framework helps communities apply strategic thinking to prioritize public health issues and identify resources to address them. MAPP is not an agency-focused assessment process; rather, it is an interactive process that can improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and ultimately the performance of local public health systems.
The 2019 Community Health Assessment showed that while Loudoun County is relatively healthy overall, community members have significant differences in health outcomes depending on race, gender, age, income, ZIP code and education. The top health issues identified in Loudoun, listed alphabetically, were: chronic conditions; economic stability; healthcare access; immunizations and infectious disease; injury and violence; mental health; neighborhood and built environment; oral health; and tobacco and substance use.
More information about MAPP is available online and through the Health Department.
