The purpose of this paper is to assess a community you are working in and to identify and assess trends. A community report card format will enable you to determine how well the community is doing on selected indicators. In practice the C/PHN would work with community agencies to identify indicators and analyze trends to determine if goals are being met. In this exercise, you will choose to analyze data from the community your clinical agency location. If the agency focuses on the population in a city/town, then use city/town data. If the agency focuses on the county population, then use county data. If the agency focuses on a small community (population < 30,000), then you may need to use country data for some indicators, and you will need to explain this in the analysis. The paper will follow the following template. You will use data from three data points (e.g. 2000, 2005, 2010) under those indicators identified with an asterisk (*). All data should be reported as rates. You can list the data in a table, and the analysis should be directly under the data table when required. References for data should be cited in text and in a reference page following APA format.
