The Chronicle's Victoria Colliver penned a fascinating story in today's issue, one that mentions an "online report card on the health of San Franciscans" that's being introduced today "by a consortium of public and private health groups." The report will, ideally, help improve parts of the city when it comes to public health.
A few interesting tidbits:
"Suicide is the fourth-leading cause of early death among whites in San Francisco, but the eighth-leading cause among Latinos."
"San Franciscans who live in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood can expect to live 14 fewer years on average than people who live on Russian Hill."
"Pedestrian accidents are most likely to occur in Chinatown, the Financial District, South of Market and Civic Center."
