What are Community Profiles?
NJSHAD Community Profiles are summary tables that use existing NJSHAD Indicator Reports to display the most recent data available from multiple indicators for a single community, along with comparison data for New Jersey and the United States, where available.

An Indicator Report must include a graphical view with data for county or race/ethnicity in order to be included in the Community Dashboard for any community of that type. For instance, in order to see a summary of data for Atlantic County, the Indicator Reports of interest must have a graphical view and data for counties.
