Mayors and the Health of Cities sheds light on how US mayors perceive and prioritize the health of their cities in the context of existing urban health data.

Findings included in the report are based on analyses from several datasets and sources, including a nationally representative survey of American mayors, the City Health Dashboard 500 Cities, and supplemental information from federal sources.
