SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 1 Introduction The City of Springdale in Hamilton County, Ohio covers 4.96 square miles and has 11,223 residents. The Community Health Assessment (CHA) will be used by the Springdale Health Department to identify the major disorders, disabilities, infectious disease, and chronic disorders prevalent in the community. The CHA will also be used as an evaluation tool for the current and future health programs. According to the Public Health Accreditation Board, a community health assessment is a systematic examination of the health status indicators for a given population that is used to identify key problems and assets in a community. The ultimate goal of a community health assessment is to develop strategies to address the community’s health needs and identified issues (Turnock, 2012). Methods The Springdale Health Department obtained reportable communicable disease data (relevant to the health of the community) through our local community health partners (hospitals, clinics, medical offices, urgent care centers, etc.). The list of reportable diseases is determined by the Ohio Department of Health and must be reported through the Ohio Disease Reporting System (ODRS). This information is listed in Appendix 1. The Springdale Health Department began the search for Springdale specific health data by contacting local nongovernmental organizations that compile health data. Unfortunately, the health data was not available specifically for the City of Springdale, rather for the region. The local nongovernment organizations referred the Springdale Health Department to the state government operated websites for health data collection.
SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 2 The Springdale Health Department reviewed local health data from the state government websites. We found regional health data for Hamilton County on the Ohio Department of Health's website. Data specific to Springdale wasn't readily available. In an effort to obtain Springdale specific health data, the Springdale Health Department contacted the healthcare centers frequently used by residents of the City of Springdale, including Mercy Hospital in Fairfield and Bethesda North Hospital in Montgomery. This course of action was discussed and approved by the City of Springdale, the Springdale Health Department, and the Springdale Community Health Assessment Steering Committee. Unfortunately, we had limited success obtaining data due to the small size of the community relative to the larger (regional) population served by these health care centers. While the Springdale specific data we sought wasn't readily available, the health care centers suggested the Springdale Health Department review data on the state government operated websites. In order to obtain Springdale specific health data, the Springdale Health Department designed a twenty question survey to collect data from the community. This survey was placed on the Survey Monkey website and was promoted through social media and through our outreach with community partners. Process The limited Springdale specific health data available to the Springdale Health Department prior to the Community Health Assessment indicated the most commonly occurring health conditions in Springdale appeared to be aligned with those of the region. Therefore, the twenty question survey for the Springdale Community Health Assessment was designed based upon the most common health conditions in the region (Hamilton County). The CHA survey was reviewed by the City of Springdale, the CHA Steering Committee, the Springdale Health Department, and was approved for public participation. Appendix 2 shows the survey questions.
SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 3 The CHA survey was bilingual (English and Spanish) and contained direct questions with yes, no and detailed information answers. The CHA sample was selected by the convenience sample method. The Community Health Survey was provided online through the Survey Monkey website. The Springdale Health Department provided a social media message via Facebook with a link to the survey and a link on the Springdale Health Department's webpage. Further, announcements about the Springdale CHA Survey were placed on bulletin boards in City of Springdale buildings as well as in the Springdale Newsletter. The CHA survey was also offered in print. Visitors to the Springdale Municipal Building and City of Springdale sponsored events were provided with an opportunity to take the survey. The Springdale Health Department sampled 96 participants of roughly 11,200 constituents. The margin of error for the Springdale CHA was ten percent with a ninety five percent confidence interval. In addition to the sampling methods outlined above, print surveys were distributed to the tax department and at Springdale community events. Appendix 3 shows the timeline of the advertisement and locations of survey distribution. The Survey Monkey website was used to obtain the survey results. Results of the print surveys were uploaded to the Survey Monkey website; effectively, the results of online responses and print responses were combined. Apart from the use of the survey as a tool for community health assessment, the survey will be used as a tool for the evaluation of the Springdale Health Department programs.

SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 11 I. Community Overview A. General Description Located in Hamilton County, just north of Cincinnati, is the city of Springdale, Ohio. Occupying 4.96 square miles, Springdale is home to 11,223 residents (U.S. Census Bureau, 2010). B. History Founded in 1806 by John Baldwin, the post-revolutionary village was given the name ‘Springfield’, and has since developed into the city of Springdale. Originally an urban center with homes close together and businesses within walking distance, Springdale has evolved into a suburban community situated along two well-traveled interstates (City of Springdale, 2006). C. Boundaries Springdale is easily accessible from Interstate-275 and Interstate-75. The northern and eastern boundaries of the city are clearly established, while the southern and western boundaries exist in more of a staggered pattern, as seen in Figure 1 below. The northern border is Crescentville Road, and the eastern border is Chesterdale Road. Figure 1. Springdale, Ohio Boundaries Source: Google Maps D. Past and current cultural makeup
SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 12 Historically, Springdale has been predominantly Caucasian in makeup. Recently, a shift has occurred resulting from an influx of Hispanic persons (U.S. Census Bureau, 2000; U.S. Census Bureau, 2010). Details regarding the current cultural makeup of Springdale are discussed in Population Characteristics. E. Asset Mapping Individual assets include: Cameron Park, Chamberlin Park, Hilda-Ross Memorial Park, Oak Hill Cemetery, Old St. Mary’s Cemetery, Tri-County Golf Ranch, and Underwood Park (Figure 2).

Key Findings The community of Springdale, Ohio has shifted and grown since its establishment in 1806. Originally a close-knit village, Springdale has evolved into a bustling suburban community. Recent years have brought an influx of Latino and Hispanic persons, resulting in a diversified population. Several valuable assets exist within the community. These assets can be divided into three categories: individual assets, organizational assets, and institutional assets. Of these assets, the Springdale Community Center and the Healing Center are of utmost value.

Population changes including recent immigrant groups Table 2 shows the breakdown of Springdale residents by race, as reported by the U.S. Census in 2000 and 2010. Data shows a decrease in Caucasian population. It should be noted that this is the only category to experience a negative change in the last 10 years. The positive change in total population over the 10-year period can be attributed to a significant increase in Hispanic peoples. Although the Hispanic population increased in Ohio and Hamilton County, the percentage increase was substantially higher in the City of Springdale (Figure 5). Table 2.

The table below includes information on the prominent occupations in Springdale, OH, by gender and occupational earnings. All values are estimates made by the US Census Bureau in 2013. Springdale’s largest occupation category is service, which includes fire fighters, police, personal care workers, groundskeepers, healthcare support
SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 24 occupations, and food preparation. Sales and office occupations also employ a large number of Springdale residents. The highest grossing occupational category is computers, engineering, and sciences, and the lowest grossing occupational category is service. Males make more earnings than females in five of the seven occupational categories, with females making more than males in the remaining two. The largest gender income discrepancy is in healthcare and technical occupations, where females make 24,564 more US dollars than males in the same category. Table 6.

Source: U.S. Department of Commerce, 2013 Generally speaking, the people of the City of Springdale, Ohio made the same or less money in each occupational category than those in the State of Ohio as a whole, with the exception of the computers, engineering, and sciences categories, the sales category, and the production, transportation, and material moving occupations. The difference in these three
SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 25 categories from the Ohio median earnings is very small. This is why it is stated above that the people of Springdale made the same or less than the Ohio medians in all categories. Gender differences in gross earnings are more evident when looking at the state of Ohio as compared to the City of Springdale, as males made more than females in every category studied. Table 7.

Poverty in Springdale, Ohio The greatest degrees of individuals below the poverty line in Springdale, Ohio occur with the female gender, the white race or Hispanic/Latino heritage, those who are unemployed, and those who have no high school diploma. While education is crucial to rising above the poverty line, it is clear that it is not the sole factor in combating poverty, as 17.7 percent of high school graduates fell below the poverty line, and close to 10 percent of college attendees and graduates of bachelor or higher
SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 26 degrees still fell below the poverty line. There is also a discrepancy in gender, with far more women falling below the poverty line than men, and a greater percentage of young people classified as impoverished than older individuals.

Source: U.S. Department of Commerce, 2013; U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2009-2013 Delving further into the issue of poverty in Springdale, Ohio we will consider other factors, such as family structure, number of children, number of workers in the family, and the
SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 27 assistance families receive from the government. Table 9 reveals some clear trends about Springdale’s poverty: first, the greater the number of children in a household, the greater the chance of being below the FPL; and second, the more workers in the household, the less the chance of being below the FPL. The most startling example of this is in households with three or more working family members. These families, regardless of whether they were married or single families, had zero percent poverty across the board. Hispanic/Latino families have to deal with poverty more than other ethnic groups, and Asian families reported zero percent of families below the FPL. Table 9.

SPRINGDALE COMMUNITY ASSESSMENT 2016-2017 43 N. Key Findings Overall, Springdale is a mainly residential and business area. It is home to a large community center, which is a valuable resource for members of the community. Crime is relatively low in the area, especially violent crimes and homicides. There are several childcare centers, schools, churches, and retirement communities, making Springdale a favorable community for those of all generations. IV. Health Information A. Vital Statistics No information was discoverable for the city of Springdale specific to vital statistics; therefore the statistics used were at the County level. Infant mortality rate is the number of children less than one year of age who died divided by the number of live births per 1000 live births. In 2011, Hamilton county had 11,077 live births with 122 of them resulting in infant mortality. In 2012, Hamilton County had a slight improvement with 66 infant deaths compared to 7,182 live births. Hamilton County has an infant mortality rate of 9.9 while Cincinnati as a whole has a rate of 12.4. These values are significantly higher than the Healthy People 2020 goal of 6.0 and are also greater than the United States average of 6.1 infant deaths per 1,000 live births. A study by Cradle Cincinnati (2015) suggests that infant mortality rates in Cincinnati are significantly impacted by factors such as obesity in pregnancy, inadequately spaced pregnancies, and substance abuse during pregnancy. Additionally, preterm births have as much as a 66 percent impact on the increased infant mortality rates. Table 17.

It is important to note in Table 24 below that unintentional injuries outrank homicides and suicides combined in Hamilton County. Furthermore, according to the CDC (2015), the majority of unintentional deaths are related to drug use. This is a huge concern for public health, especially considering the current problem that Cincinnati and neighboring cities have with drug use, particularly heroin. Other injury-related deaths included under this category of unintentional injuries are falls, drowning, and choking. Based on the significant elderly population that Springdale has at its numerous retirement homes, such as Maple Knoll, falls would be a big concern to monitor within the community. However, according to the CDC (2015), the top five leading causes of death still remain the same nationwide. The top five leading causes of death are heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases, unintentional injuries, and stroke.

Springdale is not considered an extremely violent community in terms of homicides and rapes. However, the community experiences a large amount of burglaries and thefts in the area. Based on our windshield survey, there are certain parts of the City that are not very safe. That being said, it was surprising to see that the city does not encounter many murders or homicides. This point was confirmed by one of the City of Springdale police officers, who stated that there has not been gun violence in the city for quite a few years (Springdale police officer, personal communication, September 19, 2015).
