Local Data in Boulder County Shines during Health Week

Boulder County Public Health officials have shared some local health statistics to mark National Public Health Week. One positive finding was the low teen birth rate in the county, with just five births per 1,000 females aged 15 to 19. However, there are also areas of concern that were highlighted. For example, Boulder County’s suicide rates are higher than the national average. Additionally, the county’s air pollution levels exceed both state and national averages. These challenges highlight the need for continued efforts to improve the overall health and well-being of the community.
