Domestic violence reported
Number of domestic violence offenses per 1,000 residents. Domestic violence includes any violence of one family member against another family member. When more than one victim is involved an offense is filed for each victim. Multiple property violations performed at the same incident are counted as one offense. However, when both types of events happen, only the victim incidents are reported as offenses. Offenses focus on the nature of the crime, while arrests focus on the apprehended accused perpetrator. Many offenses occur without arresting perpetrators.
Domestic violence data was retrieved from the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services.
How is Snohomish County trending?

Similar to Washington State, the reported domestic violence offenses per 1,000 residents has been on the rise. Snohomish County typically reports less offenses per 1,000 residents than Washington State.


Access to healthy food
Percentage of total population within a designated area that is identified as both “low income” and having “low access” to healthy food. Note that there are many ways to measure food access for individuals and for neighborhoods, and many ways to define which areas are food deserts (neighborhoods that lack healthy food sources). Explore the USDA Food Access Research Atlas data to determine other possible indicators to measure food access in your jurisdiction.
Limited access to supermarkets, supercenters, grocery stores, or other sources of healthy and affordable food may make it harder for some community residents to eat a healthy diet. Access to healthy food data retrieved from Department of Agriculture Food Access Research Atlas.
