500 Cities project

Burlington is one of 500 cities across the U.S. to be part of the 500 Cities Project, a joint effort between CDC, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the CDC Foundation. The project provides interactive city- and census track-level data to help communities see a fuller picture of how they fare on chronic disease measures such as smoking, obesity, mammogram and cholesterol screening rates and other factors that impact health.
