The Coshocton City and Coshocton County Health Departments collaborated with the Appalachian Rural Health Institute (ARHI) at Ohio University on this Community Health Assessment for Coshocton County. The 2017 Community Health Assessment identified six (6) main health issues in our community that are listed in the table below (ranked by importance, 1=highest 6=lowest).

Health Issue

Community Survey Rank

Substance abuse1
Cardiovascular disease4
Chronic low respiratory disease6

The health assessment showed heart disease and cancers as the leading causes of death in the county. This health survey suggests more public concern with substance abuse in the county than the two leading causes of death. This health assessment also includes environmental health indicators into the assessment process. Those who participated in the survey clearly identified housing and neighborhood conditions as their main concerns related to environmental health.
