LHDs receive funding from a variety of sources, including local, state, federal, and clinical sources. This page presents two charts illustrating LHD revenue sources. The first chart is a bar chart displaying the average (mean) percentage of revenue from each revenue source for all LHDs. Use the filters to display further breakdowns by select LHD demographic characteristics. Use the “Compare Results by” drop-down to display difference between region of the country, degree of urbanization, and population size served.
Each box and whisker plot below describes how the amount of funding received from these sources may vary from LHD to LHD among those who report receiving revenue from that source. Specifically, we examine the proportion of an LHD’s overall revenue that comes from each revenue source. The horizonal lines represent the overall range of this value for each source below, among all LHDs. The vertical lines, or crosshatches, at the beginning and end of these lines represent the minimum and maximum proportion of overall revenue made up by each of these sources. When no filters are applied, the minimum value for each box and whisker plot is zero. This is because there are always some LHDs who do not receive any revenue from a particular source. The shaded blue boxes represent the inter quartile range (IQR) of each distribution – that is, they begin at the 25th percentile and end at the 75th percentile of the distribution. The median, or 50th percentile is depicted by the vertical line within the box. Exact values for these statistics can viewed by hovering your mouse over the plot for each revenue source.
