Health Status Report
The Clark County Health Status Report is a series of volumes covering the Southern Nevada Health District’s reports to the community.
Reporting health status helps us understand and interpret the health of our population, and is at the heart of the Southern Nevada Health District’s mission to protect and promote the health and well-being of Southern Nevada residents and visitors.
The Clark County Health Status Report is a tool for planning, as well as for learning. We hope it will stimulate further questions, generate discussions, and guide activities to improve the health status of Clark County residents and visitors.
