“Our Communities” edition highlights the Communities of Cuyahoga County 

 

CUYAHOGA COUNTY - The Cuyahoga County Planning Commission is pleased to announce the release of Our Communities: The 2024 Data Book, the latest publication in the Data Book series. These documents provide helpful insights and information about Cuyahoga County and its communities.

 

The Data Book series assists local communities by providing recent, regularly updated data in an easily accessible format. The new edition provides data for every city, village, and township in Cuyahoga County, and covers 56 indicators in six categories, including a new section on health data.

 

The sections include:

 

  • Demographics: information about populations, including size, density, age, race and ethnicity, plus information about households
  • Economy: includes figures on employment, income, poverty, educational attainment, and the labor force
  • Housing: offers data about the number, types, and age of housing, as well as sales, rents, and occupancy
  • Land Use: provides numbers on land usage, zoning, parkland, and vacant land
  • Transportation: details about commuting, vehicle ownership, public transit, and crashes
  • Health: this new section covers heath conditions and health risk measures.

 

In addition to the eight indicators in the new health section, this edition features 11 other new indicators, including:

 

  • Single-parent households, an important social determinant of heath
  • New developments, places that have seen significant new construction
  • Housing cost burden, households that spend more than 30% of their incomes on housing costs
  • Land cover, a description of the types of physical materials on an area’s surface.

 

All indicators carried over from previous editions were refreshed with updated data.

 

“The Data Book provides an abundance of valuable data that our communities and partners in Cuyahoga County can use in a variety of ways,” said Mary Cierebiej, Executive Director of the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission.  “Our Data Book information has been used in federal, state and local funding applications to support the request with factual data. It is a powerful resource for communities and decision makers and we hope it will help them continue to advance their goals.”

 

 

Figures in Our Communities were compiled from a variety of sources, including the U.S. Census Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Ohio Department of Transportation, and several local data providers.
