To: All Herkimer County Residents

The Herkimer County Legislature is pleased to make available, in PDF format, the 2016 Herkimer County Risk Assessment Profile, a data‑based assessment of community strengths and challenges that affect the health and well‑being of Herkimer County residents.

The 2016 Profile was created by Herkimer County Integrated County Planning and Herkimer County Public Health, in collaboration with the members of the Comprehensive Assessment Task Force.  It is the sixth edition of the Profile; the first published in 2000.

The 2016 Risk Assessment Profile includes over 400 pages of local, state and national data organized into six areas of focus:  Community, Citizenship, Physical and Emotional Health, Family, Economic Security, and Education.  The Physical and Emotional Health section of the Profile is organized utilizing the New York State Department of Health’s Prevention Agenda Priority Areas, which were launched in conjunction with the required Community Health Assessments performed by the Herkimer County Public Health Department in collaboration with local hospitals and community stakeholders.

We hope that the 2016 Risk Assessment Profile can be used by public and private agencies as a resource when planning for services that impact the health and well‑being of Herkimer County residents.

Bernard Peplinski, Sr., Chairman
Herkimer County Legislature
