Community Health Assessment
In 2015, the Macomb County Health Department began the process of conducting a Community Health Assessment and a Community Health Improvement Plan. We want to thank all of our committed community partners who worked tirelessly on helping us to complete these reports as well as our staff who did so much of the behind the scenes work.
In 2020, MCHD will begin its second Community Health Assessment. You can find historical and current Community Health Assessment information and resources on our dedicated website:

Behavioral Risk Factor Survey
The Macomb County Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) is a telephone survey of Macomb County residents and is the only source of county-specific, population-based estimates of the prevalence of various health behaviors, medical conditions, and preventive health care practices. The data is presented by age group, gender, race, education level and household income level. These results are used by health agencies, academic institutions, non-profit organizations and others to develop and evaluate programs that promote the health of Macomb County citizens.

Data Request Form
Individuals may request data from Macomb County Health Department (MCHD) by completing this form. MCHD reserves the right to deny any data requests based on available resources and confidentiality standards. It may not be possible to release data at the town level, depending on the data set, the size of the city/town, and whether or not it would be acceptable to have multiple years of data combined, because of the need to maintain confidentiality.
All data requests require at least 10 business days to process. Large or complex requests will require a longer time frame for completion. MCHD recommends starting requests for confidential data a minimum of 60 days prior to the project start date.
This is not equivalent to either a FOIA or records request for your personal health information.
MCHD does not provide data entry, data collection, data cleaning, data coding, or data transcription services.
