San Francisco Indicator Project
The San Francisco Indicator Project is a comprehensive evaluation metric to consider health needs in urban development plans and projects. Evaluation of plans or projects against measurable indicators and development targets provides information about both the positive and negative ways in which health is impacted by a proposed development project. This helps to bring attention to the ways that development can improve population health, allowing those involved in policy- and decision-making to make more informed choices between development trade-offs.
Pedestrian Injury Forecasting Model
San Francisco’s public pedestrian injury from traffic-related collisions is roughly five times higher than the national projected target. To help curb this number, DPH has instituted a forecasting model to analyze how different factors (street type, environmental conditions, traffic volume, etc.) can affect pedestrian injury.
