In January, our team reviewed the past twelve months of site data to better understand our online community. While we’re still learning what members of Community Commons are doing with the site one piece of information we were recently able to take a closer look at was search terms.
What are members searching for on Community Commons? While a variety of search terms were entered on the site in 2015, we noticed a high amount of searches related to chronic disease. This week we are highlighting some of that data, specifically: obesity and diabetes.
‘Obesity’ was the most frequently searched term on Community Commons in 2015. Besides the map above, here are other obesity-related data sets available on Community Commons:
- Children Age 2-4 Obese, Low-Income, PedNSS 2009-11
- Children Age 10-17 Obese (BMI-for-age), NSCH 2011-12
- Obese (BMI >= 30), Adults Age 18+, BRFSS 2011-12
- Obese (BMI >= 30), Adults Age 20+, CDC NCCDPHP 2012
You can also create a CHNA Report on the Commons to visualize trends over time. Just select your State and County, then choose the health outcomes category in your report!
