Few researchers have examined the problem of comparing the performances of local health departments.
A contributing factor is the lack of a uniform method for describing the range of public health activities.
The centers for Disease control and Prevention's Public Health Practice Program Once has identified 10 organizational practices that may be used to assure that the core functions of public health are being carried out at a local health department.
The researchers determined the percentage of time devoted to each of the 10 practices by individual employees at a local public health unit in Tampa, FL.
They identified the manpower expenditures and hours allocated to each of the 10 practices within the major program divisions of the unit.
