What does health look like in the Twin Counties?

2017 Community Health Opinion Survey

Working with the North Carolina Institute for Public Health, situated in the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, the Partnership conducted a community health opinion survey in 2017 to gather residents’ opinions on pressing health needs in the community. Over the course of six days, 44 interviewers in Edgecombe and Nash counties knocked on over 1,000 doors and interviewed 324 community members.  The survey provided the Twin Counties with reliable local-level data.  The demographics of the sample population closely matched the counties as a whole, meaning the data was representative.  To learn more about the survey methodology and how to use the data workbook, visit the Data to Impact page.
