Local Data for Health Week Showcases Boulder County’s Statistics

Boulder County Public Health Recognizes Positive Health Statistics but Faces Challenges in Suicide Rates and Air Pollution Levels

Boulder County Public Health officials recognized positive health statistics during National Public Health Week on Monday. Despite these strengths, the county faces challenges such as higher suicide rates and air pollution levels that exceed both state and national averages. These struggles are areas of concern that Boulder County Public Health is working to address in order to improve the overall health and well-being of residents.

The county has a low teen birth rate of five births per 1,000 females aged 15 to 19, which is a positive statistic. Additionally, residents have access to many exercise opportunities due to their proximity to parks and recreation facilities.

Boulder County Public Health officials acknowledged the challenges that the county faces and pledged to continue working towards improving the health and well-being of its residents. The organization is committed to addressing issues such as suicide rates and air pollution levels in order to create a healthier future for all members of the community.
