Community Health Statistics

Florida Department of Health in Volusia County Office of Informatics and Assessment

The Communications and Performance Management's mission is to inform the Volusia County community of its health status, provide health data to facilitate healthy lifestyle choices, and assist health department programs with improving processes and services using data.

This is accomplished by:

  • developing priorities, gathering resources and engaging subject matter experts to produce health assessment reports

  • facilitating and maintaining the strategic planning and accreditation processes

  • implementing and supporting quality improvement projects to improve the quality, efficiency and effectiveness of health department programs and services

The division turns data into information for use in decision making processes by the community, public health professionals and those influencing the health status of Volusia County residents.

Three types of statistical reports are created and are found on the menu on the left:

  • Data briefs strictly are statistical, graphs and charts.

  • Quarterly reports may contain articles by community partners, geographic distribution of disease and key points, and a local, state and national report card.

  • Special reports typically focus on a single topic from a statistical point of view.
