About the project

A note from the project directors

Wilder Research of St. Paul, MN (www.wilderresearch.org)  and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis (www.minneapolisfed.org) developed this site to provide measures, data sources, and logic models for community development and health organizations working together to address social determinants of health and improve community health and well-being.

Two sets of activities influenced our decision to construct the site. First, research we conducted for the 2013 Commission to Build a Healthier America produced evidence that, despite very good intentions, many community development and public health organizations struggle with the development of measures to assess their progress and their impacts. Second, five years of Federal Reserve Bank and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation sponsored meetings across the U.S. to promote cross-sector collaboration between community development and public health organizations (including three meetings we sponsored in Minnesota) surfaced a need for the field of community health improvement to enhance its ability to measure outcomes, especially for projects with cross-sector partners.

In designing the site, we adopted a logic model framework. While it is not a perfect format for every user interested in metrics, logic model concepts and vocabulary enable practitioners to differentiate: the ingredients that go into their work (inputs); what they do (activities); how much they do (outputs); and what difference their work makes, or will make (outcomes). The logic models on the site contain examples of inputs, activities, outputs, and outcomes that relate to community health improvement initiatives. We developed them as menus for community development and health practitioners to use in order to select elements that apply to their own efforts.

We searched for open access data from objective, unbiased sources for each of the outcome measures in the logic models. Such data exist for some outcomes, but do not exist for others. We provided links to existing data sources when available.

Wilder Research will maintain this site at http://metricsforhealthycommunities.org, which we are pleased to have featured in Build Healthy Places Network's MeasureUp portal. As new data sources and measures become available, we will update the site. In addition, both Build Healthy Places Network and Wilder Research will respond to questions from users of the site.

Development of this site was supported by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Public access is made possible by a partnership with the Build Healthy Places Network, a program of the Public Health Institute.

Bryan Lloyd of Wilder Research masterfully designed this site. Also at Wilder Research, Matthew Steele researched sources of measures, based on literature and web searches by Heather Johnson and Amanda Eggers; Kara Malmgren organized input for many of the site’s pages. Paula Woessner of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis carefully reviewed and revised content and formats.

The following individuals participated in one or more of the following roles during the development of Metrics for Healthy Communities:

  • Build Healthy Places Metrics Workgroup Member – met via webinars to offer input on site design and comments on initial versions
  • Logic Model Reviewer – suggested activities, outputs, and outcomes for inclusion in the six example models on this site
  • Project Adviser – provided consultation and support throughout various stages of the project

An earlier survey, in 2013, provided an overview of the general extent of collaboration between the health and community development sectors in the United States. Wilder Research and the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis conducted both the 2013 and 2014 national surveys. Some of the results appear in Paul W. Mattessich and Ela J. Rausch, “Cross-Sector Collaboration to Improve Community Health: A View of the Current Landscape”. HEALTH AFFAIRS 33, No. 11 (2014): 1968-1974. Other results appear in Paul W. Mattessich and Ela J.
