The purpose of this meeting is to help NCVHS advance recommendations to HHS in three areas:

  1. Enhance public/private collaboration to increase the availability of sub-county level data
  2. Improve HHS data collection to focus on sub-county data
  3. Better align federal small area data estimation and sub-county data generation initiatives

Specifically the objectives of this meeting are to:

  • Put forth a multi-sector measurement framework reflective of the numerous initiatives under way, to serve as a basis for public/private collaboration.
  • Identify opportunities and gaps in sub-county level data metrics and potential Federal role in expanding the development of small area data.
  • Explore opportunities to align, leverage, and build multi-sectoral sub-county level metric-centric efforts to improve health and well-being.
  • Catalyze collaborative efforts to continue this work.
