Coachella Valley
Community Health Survey

Every three years, HARC conducts a random-digit-dial health survey of about 2,500 households in the Coachella Valley. The survey covers topics such as healthcare coverage, healthcare utilization, health behaviors, major disease, mental health, and more. The survey is conducted in English and Spanish, and it covers both adults and children in order to provide an unbiased, statistically reliable snapshot of the health of the Coachella Valley.

HARC’s Community Health Survey provides baseline data to our community about our demographic and socioeconomic characteristics, and about our health status and health risks. This provides background information that helps our community identify issues that need more focused attention. HARC’s data is often used to:

  • Apply for grant-funding
  • Develop needed programs and services
  • Develop public policy
  • Prioritize needs

The triennial survey helps many nonprofits to make their case for funding and to successfully secure funding for critically-needed programs and services. Organizations who use HARC’s data to support their requests for funding bring in millions each survey cycle.
