Local Data for Health Week Showcases Boulder County’s Statistics


Apr 2, 2024

Boulder County Public Health officials recognized positive health statistics on Monday during National Public Health Week. The county has a low teen birth rate of five births per 1,000 females aged 15 to 19, and residents have access to many exercise opportunities due to their proximity to parks and recreation facilities.

Despite these strengths, there are also challenges that Boulder County faces. The suicide rates in the county are higher than the national average, and air pollution levels exceed both state and national averages. These struggles are areas of concern that Boulder County Public Health is working to address in order to improve the overall health and well-being of residents.
