Community Health Survey Results

Community Health Survey Results

The Community Health Survey is an important source of data on the health of adults in Sherburne County. The survey has been conducted in 2021, 2016, and 2013.

The purpose of this survey is to collect data about the current health status of the people living in Sherburne County. These data are used to track progress and identify potential areas for improvement throughout the assessment process. The survey is an integral source of data for the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA).

The Central Minnesota Alliance (CMA), a partnership between Benton County, Sherburne County, Stearns County, and CentraCare, conducted the Community Health Survey of adults between March and June 2021 in Benton, Sherburne, and Stearns Counties. This survey was a mailed survey and was sent to a random sample of households in the three counties. Since then, we have been working to synthesize the data into a document that is easily shareable for our partners to view. We have curated data books for these areas:

  • Benton County  
  • Sherburne County
  • Stearns County  
  • St. Cloud Metro (zip code areas: 56301, 56303, 56304, 56374, 56377, 56379, and 56387)
  • Region (Benton, Sherburne, and Stearns Counties together)

We also distributed an electronic version of the survey in 2021 to capture information from groups that we felt were underrepresented. The data collected from this survey is included in a separate data book.

We extend our sincere gratitude to all the participants who took part in the Community Health Survey. Should you have any questions or require further information, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at Sherburne County Public Health, or any of our partnering organizations within the Central MN Alliance. We are here to support you and assist in navigating the data effectively.
