Rural Health Information Survey

Studies have shown that rural populations tend to experience worse health when compared to their urban or suburban counterparts. Little is known, however about why these disparities exist. There are many complex factors that can impact health for people who live in rural areas. To further explore health and healthcare in rural northern California, CCRP developed a four page survey containing questions about general health, mental health, preventive health, access and utilization of healthcare, transportation, food security, sources of health information and access to phones, electricity, and internet. Results of the surveys will help identify health disparities in underserved populations within the four-county region and inform planners and policy makers.
