Health Department data and reports

The Macomb County Health Department collects, analyzes, and disseminates many different kinds of statistics on the health status and wellbeing of Macomb County residents.

Community reports

Macomb County Opioid Community Health Assessment

The Macomb County Opioid Community Health Assessment Report provides the community and stakeholders with information and data regarding opioid mortality. This information is utilized to make recommendations for improving local social services agencies, health care organizations, and coalitions in the community regarding the opioid response.

Macomb County Baby Carrier Pilot Project

The Baby Carrier Project involved training WIC staff on the importance of safety, how to use infant carriers, and how to teach caregivers how to safely use the carrier. This document contains the project’s planning, implementation, and results of the program.

The Macomb County Health Department recognizes that breastfeeding is the optimum choice for infant feeding and understands that in order to support women in their decision to breastfeed, it is important to identify any potential barriers and work to dismantle them. 

In 2015, the Macomb County Health Department began the process of conducting a Community Health Assessment and a Community Health Improvement Plan. We want to thank all of our committed community partners who worked tirelessly on helping us to complete these reports as well as our staff who did so much of the behind the scenes work.

In 2020, MCHD will begin its second Community Health Assessment. You can find historical and current Community Health Assessment information and resources on our dedicated website:

The Macomb County Behavioral Risk Factor Survey (BRFS) is a telephone survey of Macomb County residents and is the only source of county-specific, population-based estimates of the prevalence of various health behaviors, medical conditions, and preventive health care practices. The data is presented by age group, gender, race, education level and household income level. These results are used by health agencies, academic institutions, non-profit organizations and others to develop and evaluate programs that promote the health of Macomb County citizens.
