The Fourth Edition reflects the major changes in the field of community health with updated examples and references throughout.

New to this Edition:

  • A comprehensive description of how each target setting option relates to the corresponding level of the health impact pyramid.
  • More information on informatics and big data as related to program planning and monitoring
  • A discussion of photos and video as modes of data collection.
  • A reinforcement of informatics, photos and big data as useful in program evaluation
  • Current terminology of first and second order coding of qualitative data


The following is a list of chapter specific major, substantive revisions evident in the 4th edition, beyond general updating of references:

  • Combined Chapters 3 and 4 in order to tighten and shorten the content. Only currently used planning tools are presented, and greater content on workforce planning will be added. The authors have increased the emphasis on asset-based and strengths based approaches to assessment and planning. They also discuss the relevance of the ACA to community assessment.
  • Chapter 4: Introduction the concept of root causes as social determinants.
  • Chapter 8: Provide a strong description of how each target setting option relates to the corresponding level of the health impact pyramid.
  • Moved Chapter 9 into Section III Health Program Development, and revised the wording to reflect that the information is part of the development phase.
  • Chapter 10: increased the content on informatics and big data as related to program planning and monitoring. Revised the exhibit to show the budge on an excel sheet.
  • Chapter 11: included a discussion of photos and video as modes of data collection.
  • Chapter 15: reinforced informatics, photos and big data as useful in program evaluation
  • Chapter 16: revised to reflect current terminology of first and second order coding of qualitative data. We will also frame case study as a mixed method rather than a strictly qualitative method
