In response to growing inequities in health, the Sinai Health System conducted a survey that has altered the way public health data are used in Chicago. The Sinai Urban Health Institute (SUHI), a member of the Sinai Health System, partnered with several community organizations, residents, and local leaders to complete one of the largest, most comprehensive door-to-door health surveys in Chicago, titled Sinai's Improving Community Health Survey (Sinai Survey). This chapter describes how the survey was conducted, presents selected key findings, and describes how these results were disseminated.
