These data were generated during a study that examined the feasibility of Harlem Health Advocacy Partners (HHAP), a place-based community health worker and health advocate initiative in public housing developments in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City. Data were collected in five public housing developments which were selected due to a high chronic disease burden. Data were first collected via random telephone survey of 1,633 individuals. This data informed a later interventional study, which included 370 individuals, 199 in the intervention group and 176 in the comparison group. The intervention consisted of community health workers and health advocates working in public housing. Variables collected throughout include age, gender, race/ethnicity, employment status, health insurance, self-reported general health, self-reported mental health, level of physical activity, smoker status, BMI, blood pressure, level of social connectedness, and specific health conditions including asthma, diabetes, hypertension, and depression.
