In partnership with the Big Cities Health Coalition (BCHC), the Drexel Urban Health Collaborative (UHC) has released new data on the Big Cities Health Inventory data platform. The data platform includes more than 150,000 data points for over 120 metrics of public health importance to 35 member cities of the BCHC.

Recently, 5 new metrics were added:

  • Preterm Births
  • Colorectal Cancer Deaths
  • Prostate Cancer Deaths
  • COVID-19 Vaccination Among Adults
  • COVID-19 Vaccination Among Seniors

The platform was also updated to include all available data for all metrics spanning years 2010 – 2021.

The data platform can be used for viewing charts for single cities, as well as comparing metrics across cities, and viewing racial and ethnic inequities across cities. Data can be downloaded as csv or single charts.
