Neighborhood Reports

What affects health in your neighborhood, and how does it compare with other parts of the city? Use the Neighborhood Reports to get data for your neighborhood on five important environmental health topics. The Neighborhood Reports will show you key indicators for that topic, with data for your neighborhood and how it compares to your borough’s averages and citywide values.

To start, choose a report topic and a neighborhood.

Asthma is a leading cause of hospitalizations for children. It can be made worse by housing and neighborhood characteristics. There are powerful inequities that drive racial disparities in asthma in NYC.
As the climate changes, we track New York City's risk for extreme heat, storms and flooding, and episodes of elevated ozone. These have important public health impacts: already, heat kills more people than all other natural disasters.
The design and condition of buildings, streets, public transportation, and parks influence how much physical activity people get, how much they use active transportation, and how much other healthy behavior they do. A neighborhood built environment can also affect the safety of its residents.
Housing conditions can drive health outcomes like asthma, lead poisoning, and carbon monoxide poisoning. We track housing neighborhood characteristics that can put people at risk - and special populations that are vulnernerable.
Air pollution is one of the most important environmental threats to people who live in urban areas. Exposures are linked to respiratory and heart diseases, cancers, and premature deaths. Meanwhile, emissions, levels of exposure, and population vulnerability vary across neighborhoods.
