A partnership of NashvilleHealth and the Metro Public Health Department

The Nashville Community Health + Well-being Survey is the first countywide health assessment in nearly 20 years. Comprised of responses to more than 100 health-related questions, the survey findings provide an up-to-date picture of the health of the city and seek to enhance the important health-related work already underway in the community.



NashvilleHealth and the Metro Public Health Department (MPHD) partnered to field the Nashville Community Health + Well-being Survey. Available in English and Spanish, this first-of-a-kind large-scale assessment was mailed to 12,000 Davidson County households and garnered a 15 percent response rate. A total of 1,805 respondents aged 18 and over answered either online or via a mailed paper questionnaire. The results are weighted to reflect the latest Census estimates for Davidson County and presented citywide and also broken down by gender, age, ethnicity, education, employment status, annual household income, sexual orientation, and geographic zones of Davidson County (East, Promise Zone, North West, South East, South West). Residents can explore the data through our interactive website.

In an effort to build community knowledge about the health status of our residents that can inform decision making among leaders, practitioners and other stakeholders, we are making the dataset available to researchers for analysis.
