King County Geographies

Whenever possible, indicators are reported for King County overall and for 4 Regions (North, East, Seattle, and South) within the county. The exact boundaries of the regions depend on the data source used. Unless otherwise noted in the Notes & Sources section for the indicator, region boundaries are based on aggregated census block groups. Some data sources, particularly the Communities Count Survey, use regions defined by aggregations of ZIP codes. See Regions Table for a list of ZIP codes in each region.)

While smaller than the county, the regions are still quite large. If enough data are available for a valid analysis, they may be reported by smaller geographic areas (cities, neighborhoods within large cities, and groups of smaller cities and unincorporated areas).

King County’s City Health Profiles provide demographic and health information for 25 geographic areas – mostly large cities (e.g., Seattle, Bellevue), groups of small cities (Bothell/Woodinville), or combinations of cities with nearby unincorporated areas (e.g., Renton/Fairwood). Each report has seven sections:

• Demographics
• General health status
• Leading causes of death
• Health risk factors and chronic diseases
• Injury and violence-related mortality
• Maternal and infant health
• Access to care and preventive services
The City Health Profiles can be found here.

Education data are presented by School District.
