The Community Health Survey gives the citizens in a rural community an opportunity to speak up on defined health-related questions. During the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) the community drafts a survey questionnaire consisting of “access to health care” questions. The specific questions are modified by the community to focus on important issues. The survey is then distributed to community members at a community meeting. It is essential to gather the perspective of a diverse group of community members by making certain to include lower income and minority groups. Those meeting attendees are then asked to distribute an additional 5-10 more surveys to their friends, coworkers, and family members. The average sample size in the past has been around 125 observations.

The Community Health Survey is an important measure of the respondents’ impressions and perceptions of their experiences with health care in the medical service area. It helps communities to better understand the issues surrounding their health sector, and is a very useful tool when considering future improvements.
