The Division of Public Health provides Guilford County health statistics and special reports to staff, county and city agencies, non-profit organizations, the media and county residents. As new data become available, the Health Surveillance and Analysis Unit compiles these statistics into data briefs and special reports. These briefs provide detailed statistics on leading causes of death, chronic and communicable diseases, maternal and child health and injuries.

Guilford County Community Health Assessment
The Division of Public Health conducts the Guilford County Community Health assessment (CHA) of the health of Guilford County residents every three years in collaboration with community partners. The CHA process provides a way to identify pressing health concerns and develop community health improvement plans to address priority health issues.
State of Guilford County’s Health Report (SOTCH)
During the off-years when the more comprehensive CHA is not being conducted, Public Health produces the State of the County’s Health Report (SOTCH), an abridged review of current health data and trends. The SOTCH also provides information on health priorities identified in the most recent Community Health Assessment and highlights recent data and progress made on these pressing health priorities.
