3 The New York City Community Health Survey (CHS) is a telephone survey conducted annually by the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Division of Epidemiology, Bureau of Epidemiology Services. CHS provides robust data on the health of New Yorkers, including both neighborhood and citywide estimates on a broad range of chronic diseases and behavioral risk factors. CHS is based on the National Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CHS is a cross-sectional survey that samples adults ages 18 and older from all five boroughs of New York City The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island and Queens. A computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI) system is used to collect survey data, and interviews are conducted in a variety of languages. All data collected are self-report. CHS has included adults with landline phones since 2002 and, starting in 2009, also has included adults who can be reached only by cell-phone. CHS 2008 used a stratified random sample in order to produce citywide and neighborhood-specific estimates. Cross-sectional samples were identified in each borough, and strata were then defined using the United Hospital Fund s (UHF) neighborhood designation. There are a total of 42 UHF neighborhoods in NYC, each defined by several adjoining zip codes. To increase statistical power, several neighborhoods were combined, resulting in a total of 34 neighborhoods. Approximately 250 interviews were conducted in each of the 34 strata, with a total sample size of 7,554, a response rate of 33.3% and a cooperation rate of 80.7% (AAPOR method #3). For more information and survey questionnaires, visit nyc.gov/html/doh/html/survey For other Health Department data resources and publications, visit nyc.gov/health/mycommunityshealth Introduction Reading the maps: Data on each map are divided into quartiles. Darker color gradients and larger point size represent higher percentages for a given variable. For example, in the map below, neighborhoods with darker color have a higher percentage of adults who are obese, and those with larger circles have a higher percentage of adults with diabetes. Areas that include unreliable estimates that should be interpreted with caution are identified with a hatching pattern, and areas where no estimate could be calculated or that are not covered by a UHF neighborhood (e.g., Central Park) are identified as gray areas. Maps include necessary notes reflecting age-adjusted percentages or other key information for selected variables. The maps are designed to allow readers to copy any given map and paste it into another document. Diabetes ever Obesity 2.0% - 8.8% 8.9% % 10.5% % 11.5% % 8.2% % 19.6% % 24.6% % 29.2% % Estimate should be interpreted with caution (diabetes ever). Women who had diabetes only while pregnant are included in 'no' category. Obesity is based on Body Mass Index (BMI), calculated from self-reported weight and height. A BMI of 30 or greater is classified as obese. References 1. New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
