Health Districts (HD) – 2002

Health Districts (HDs) are used primarily by the Department of Public Health to plan and manage health service delivery across the County.  HDs are aggregated from Census Tracts in order to connect them to demographic information.

Created in 2002, the HDs in this dataset are based upon 2000 Census Tracts and subdivision of Service Planning Areas (SPA).

Note: Pasadena and Long Beach are their own Health Jurisdictions.
