WNC Healthy Impact’s core regional dataset includes secondary (existing) data and primary (newly collected by WNC Health Network) data compiled to reflect a comprehensive look at health. The 2018 WNC Healthy Impact Community Health Survey was conducted from March to June, 2018. The purpose of the survey was to collect primary data to supplement the secondary core dataset, allow individual counties in the region to collect data on specific issues of concern, and hear from community members about their concerns and priorities. The survey was conducted throughout the entire WNC Healthy Impact region.
