Health researchers going door-to-door in Kenton County

KENTON COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

The Northern Kentucky Health Department, officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Kentucky Department for Public Health, will be in Kenton County conducting a health survey of residents May 1- May 4, 2012.

The research team will be going door-to-door throughout the county.

This survey is a part of the Healthy Homes and Lead-Based Paint Hazard Control grant awarded to the Kentucky Department for Public Health this year from the U.S. Department for Housing and Urban Development.

Officials will be collecting information regarding the community's perceptions on health and how their health is impacted by their home or environment.

Surveyors will be utilizing a methodology known as a Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response or CASPER, which uses a random sampling process.

The results of the survey will be used to inform program design, education and outreach needs for the Healthy Homes and Lead Based Paint Hazard Control grant.

The survey teams will ask questions from a one-page questionnaire, which should take approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.

All responses will remain anonymous, as no identifying information will be collected.

Although this will be a door-to-door survey, not all homes will be contacted.

Survey teams will use a random sampling process based on Census tract data and the number of households in that Census tract to determine which houses to contact.

Approximately 210 households will be contacted.
