Description:

This paper provides a community assessment of the New York City borough known as the Bronx, most particularly its predominantly Hispanic population. First, this paper studies the overall demographics of said population. It then reviews the Health Care Status Indicators of the community, such as mortality rates among various age groups, leading causes of death or illness, and tuberculosis infection.

From the Paper:

"For those studying and serving given populations, such as community health care workers and nurses, there must be certain methods to use for identifying and separating the wanted demographic from the general public. One of the most effective methods to do so is to group a community by its geography. This designation is called a geographic community. First of all, community is a very broad concept and term. A good definition of what a community is might be found in Goeppinger and Shuster (2004) when they write of "a social group determined by geographic boundaries and/or common values and interests" (p. 342). Thus, the initial type of community that we are trying to define is their first definition. A geographic community is one defined by the geography, the borders, where its members live."
