SmartOakland Uses Data to Illustrate Astham Rates Throughout California Compared to Oakland

Jonah Johnson, Stephanie Hayden, and Larry Brooks discuss the comparisons illustrated in this data dashboard that shows the difference between California's overall asthma rates vs. the asthma rates found in areas of Oakland.

When we find dramatic results like these it brings our attention in to ask more questions and look for more data that explains why these patterns exist so we can start to figure out how to change them for the future of society but most importantly to bring assistance to the kids in these situations as they are happening today.

When we begin to add real-time data to these data sets which are past reports we can start to bring intervention and prevention services into play, in collaboration with certified and authorized service providers, to protect and defend kids where they are today and lessen the impact of these exposures throughout their lifetimes.
