    I.      The Community Assessment Team and Assessment Process

The Edgecombe County Health Department took the lead role in the community health assessment
process. An advisory group of 32 was formed with a variety of community members and leaders. From the
advisory group, a work group of 12 was formed, including the Edgecombe County Health Department
Health Education Team.

The survey tool used was a modified version of the “Compass Survey” used by the United Way in
Cleveland County, North Carolina. The Edgecombe County Community Survey was distributed throughout
the county by means of the advisory and work groups. The community survey included questions about the
economy, education, environment, health, housing, leisure, safety, social issues, and transportation. In
addition to the community survey, a Key Informant Survey was mailed out to local business
owners/leaders, agency directors, board of health members, county commissioners, town officials, health
care providers, leaders from county departments, churches, civic groups, law enforcement, and fire and
rescue.

The Epi Info Program was used to analyze the survey results. Major issues were identified as 50% or
higher from the community and key informant surveys. Secondary data was analyzed, and major issues
were identified as well. A total of fifteen issues were identified for the prioritization process. The advisory
group met and used a rating/prioritization worksheet to identify the top priorities for Edgecombe County.
The criteria used for selecting health priorities were as follows: Magnitude of the Problem; Seriousness of
the Consequences; and Feasibility of Correcting. The advisory group came to a consensus, and two major
issues were selected as the top priorities.

The Edgecombe County Health Department works with a variety of agencies and communities within the
county. Through the community health assessment process we have expanded and strengthened our
relationships. The advisory group and work group will continue to meet and work on the action plan. Our
intentions are to reestablish our Healthy Carolinians group through this process.

        b. Historical Information

Edgecombe County was formed in 1732 from Bertie County by proclamation of the Governor. The
assembly did not confirm its creation until 1741. The county was named for Richard Edgecombe, who
became Baron Edgecombe, an English Nobleman. It covers a 505 square mile area, which remains
primarily rural. The Town of Tarboro is the County seat. It was incorporated in 1760 and is located on the
Tar River. It has a history of a thriving river port throughout the 18th and 19th centuries and Tarboro was
once considered as a candidate for North Carolina‟s capital city.

Twenty-six individual properties including the historic district of Tarboro are listed in the National Register of
Historic Places. Many are in or near Tarboro, the county seat. They include: The Barracks, Calvary
Episcopal Church, Coolman Plantation, Blount-Bridgers House, Oakland Plantation, the Town Common,
and the Railroad Depot Complex.




                                                          The Barracks
                        The Barracks gets its name from a military encampment that once occupied this site.

In 1999, over 49% of Edgecombe County was flooded after Hurricanes Dennis, Floyd and Irene dumped
over 30 inches of rain in less than two weeks. The Tar River had crest at 43 feet above flood stage, leaving
more than 6,500 (10%) of the total population of the county housed in emergency shelters. Many of the
county‟s roads were impassable. The county was virtually an island as roads were either covered with
water or blocked by fallen trees and downed power lines. Hundreds of homes were flooded causing many
families to be displaced for months throughout Edgecombe County.

IV. Community Concerns/Priorities

A community survey was conducted March through August 2010, in order to provide residents an
opportunity to express their opinions and concerns about the quality of life in Edgecombe County. The
survey contained questions about the economy, education, environment, health, housing, leisure, safety,
social issues, and transportation. Survey participants were asked to assess a variety of community issues
and to score them as either major problems, moderate problems, minor problems or not a problem.

Surveys were distributed at strategic sites throughout the county in order to reach a variety of residents. A
total of 760 surveys were collected, of which, 623 surveys were eligible. The age range of citizens
answering the survey was fairly even – respondent‟s age ranged from under 18 to over 65 years old. Both
female (74.1%) and males (25.9%) participated in the survey. Citizen‟s race was primarily black (63.4%)
and white (28%). Twenty-nine percent of respondents were high school graduates, 21.6% had some
college, and 24% had less than a high school diploma.

In addition to the community survey, a key informant survey was sent out to 65 local business
owners/leaders, agency directors, board of health members, county commissioners, town officials, health
care providers, leaders from county departments, churches, civic groups, law enforcement, and fire and
rescue. Key informants were asked questions on community strengths in addition to the community survey
questions. Forty-seven surveys were returned. The majority of respondents were white (64.4%; black
31.1%), age 40 to 54 (42.6%), and female 52.3% (male 47.7%).

Based on the findings from the community and key informant surveys, combined with the health data, the
Edgecombe County Community Health Assessment Advisory Group identified 15 chief health and social
concerns for the county. The top health and community concerns are as follows: Lack of Jobs,
Unemployment or Underemployment, Teen Pregnancy, Overweight & Obesity, Chronic Disease, Poverty,
Drug Abuse, HIV/AIDS/STD‟s, Crime, Lack of Affordable Medical Care, Lack of Affordable Child Care,
Gangs, Family Violence/Child Abuse, Illiteracy, and Alcohol Abuse.

After reviewing and discussing this information, the Edgecombe County Advisory Group members
participated in rating the top 2 out of 15 community concerns using a Prioritization Worksheet. The
worksheet asked that each of the issues be ranked according to three criteria: Magnitude of the Problem,
Seriousness of the Consequences, and Feasibility of Correcting the Problem. Results of these worksheets
were calculated to come up with the top 2 priorities, which are as follows:

Selected Priority Issues
    1. Overweight & Obesity
    2. Chronic Disease

        Rating/Prioritizing Community Health Issues
           Recommended Criteria for Selecting Health Priorities

Magnitude of the Problem
How many persons does the problem affect, either actually or potentially?


Seriousness of the Consequences
What degree of disability or premature death occurs because of the problem? What are
the potential burdens to your community, such as economic or social burdens?


Feasibility of Correcting
Is the problem amenable to interventions (i.e., Is the intervention feasible scientifically
as well as acceptable to the community?) What technology, knowledge, or resources
are necessary to effect a change? Is the problem preventable?
