About the Survey

The Howard County Health Assessment Survey is the most in-depth survey to ever examine the health and health needs of Howard County Residents.  In 2014, surveyors spoke with over 2,000 residents by telephone, in both English and Spanish.  Questions were asked about their diet, exercise, access to care, health care coverage, chronic disease, behavioral health and addictions.
