The 2017 Central Health Demographic Report is a tool designed to assist all governmental, non-profit, and private entities serving Travis County’s safety net population.
The Demographic Report also provides analysis of where the patients served by Central Health reside, and where they are receiving care. Combined, this data enables a broad understanding of the many needs experienced by low-income residents, from health care to housing to transportation and more.
