A screening survey to assess local public health performance.
Current studies are attempting to develop a national surveillance system to measure the extent that populations are served by local departments carrying out the core functions of public health.
Early phases of the study featured observations on 14 health departments that have been subjects of a longitudinal study.
These departments were surveyed using a protocol with 81 different indicators.
The results permitted distinctions to be made among the departments on levels of performance according to core functions and their associated practices.
To simplify the survey protocol so that it might be suitable for use with a large number of local public health jurisdictions, a subset of 26 indicators was selected, from the previously developed protocol.
