Cortland Counts: An Assessment of Health and
Well-being in Cortland County
Since 2001, five local organizations and
agencies have collaborated as the
Community Assessment Team* (CAT), to
provide assets and needs assessments on
the health and well-being of our community.
These resources are published in two forms:
the annual Cortland Counts Report Card,
and the more comprehensive Cortland
Counts Report, issued every 4 years.

* The Community Assessment Team:
Seven Valleys Health Coalition
Cortland County Health Department
Guthrie Cortland Medical Center
United Way for Cortland County
SUNY Cortland’s Institute for Civic Engagement
The annual report cards provide current data in five areas:
Health and Safety;
Social Cohesion, Culture and Recreation;
Employment, Economy, and Welfare;
Housing and Environment; and
Positive Development Through the Life Stages.
By obtaining a broader view of conditions in the local community, individual agencies are able to plan for and obtain adequate resources to meet unidentified,
under-served, and/or emerging needs.
Reports are posted online, and hard copies are also available at the Seven Valleys Health Coalition office at
10 Kennedy Parkway, Cortland, at several local businesses, and at all libraries within Cortland County.
For older archived reports, please contact us.
