Northeast Florida Counts Initiative
(Opens in New Window)

Northeast Florida Counts is a community-driven, dynamic, and interactive web-based information system that provides easy to understand health, environmental and other sustainability indicators for Northeast Florida.

This innovative website also links its visitors to promising practices and resources that encourage and promote informed community action. The site addresses the issue of accessibility to data and serves as a road map for collaborative community improvement by highlighting where we have been, our current status, and directing where we need to go.

Northeast Florida Counts is your one-stop source of population data and information about community health and healthy communities in general. It is intended to help planners, policy makers, and community members learn about issues and identify improvements. We invite you to use the site as a tool for community assessment, strategic planning, collaboration, community capacity development, grant development, and advocacy.
