Why is this important?

Social and economic factors strongly influence the health of the individual and community. Studies repeatedly show a strong correlation between socioeconomic status and health outcomes. Understanding how a community compares to surrounding areas in terms of key social indicators such as educational attainment and crimes rates as well as understanding the comparative economic status of a community is necessary to determine the types of community health programs needed.
