Prevalence of Adult Heart Disease, 2013-2014

Adult respondents ages 18+ who were ever diagnosed with heart disease by a doctor. Years covered are from 2013-2014 by zip code. Data taken from the California Health Interview Survey Neighborhood Edition (AskCHIS NE) (http://askchisne.ucla.edu/), downloaded February 2018.AskCHIS Neighborhood Edition is an online data dissemination and visualization platform that provides health estimates at sub-county geographic regions. Estimates are powered by data from The California Health Interview Survey (CHIS). CHIS is conducted by The UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, an affiliate of UCLA Fielding School of Public Health.Health estimates available in AskCHIS NE (Neighborhood Edition) are model-based small area estimates (SAEs).SAEs are not direct estimates (estimates produced directly from survey data, such as those provided through AskCHIS).CHIS data and analytic results are used extensively in California in policy development, service planning and research, and is recognized and valued nationally as a model population-based health survey.Before using estimates from AskCHIS NE, it is recommended that you read more about the methodology and data limitations at: http://healthpolicy.ucla.edu/Lists/AskCHIS%20NE%20Page%20Content/AllItems.aspx.

These data are best viewed with a City of Los Angeles political boundary file (i.e., City of Los Angeles jurisdiction boundary, City Council boundary, etc.) FAQS: 1. Which cycle of CHIS does AskCHIS Neighborhood Edition provide estimates for?All health estimates in this version of AskCHIS Neighborhood Edition are based on data from the 2013-2014 California Health Interview Survey.  2. Why do your population estimates differ from other sources like ACS? The population estimates in AskCHIS NE represent the CHIS 2013-2014 population sample, which excludes Californians living in group quarters (such as prisons, nursing homes, and dormitories). 3. Why isn't there data available for all ZIP codes in Los Angeles?While AskCHIS NE has data on all ZCTAs (Zip Code Tabulation Areas), two factors may influence our ability to display the estimates:A small population (under 15,000): currently, the application only shows estimates for geographic entities with populations above 15,000. If your ZCTA has a population below this threshold, the easiest way to obtain data is to combine it with a neighboring ZCTA and obtain a pooled estimate.A high coefficient of variation: high coefficients of variation denote statistical instability.
