HIP Survey Data
2010 and 2005 HIP survey data are now available online!
- How many Washtenaw County residents smoke?
- How often do we exercise?
- How many children in our community have asthma?
The data for these questions and many more are available from the 2005 and 2010 HIP surveys. Every 5 years the Washtenaw County Health Improvement Plan (HIP) survey is conducted in our community. In both 2005 and 2010, over 2000 adults in Washtenaw County were interviewed by phone about their health status and health behavior. In addition, over 600 of the adults reported on the health status of one child in the household.
The HIP survey is based on a random-digit dial landline sample (cell phones were not included). Survey responses are weighted to reflect the demographic characteristics of Washtenaw County. The data are also available by region of the County and many of the questions can be viewed on a map.
Most of the questions in the 2005 and 2010 HIP surveys are based on the Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS), so local data can be directly compared to state and national data.
Many of the survey questions have been asked since 1995, allowing for trends to emerge. Click here to view the 2005-2010 HIP Trend Data slides.
