DeKalb County Dashboard

This dashboard enables users to compare a county's values to Indiana values and various goals (such as the Indiana State Health Improvement Plan and Healthy People 2020). Click on a category below to view its indicators. A gauge ranging from "bad" to "good" values helps one visualize how well the county is doing.
