The County of San Diego uses market potential data to explore spatial patterns of health behaviors and diabetes. Analysis of exercise-related variables correlates communities with lower disease rates with more adults who exercise for diet control and have greater frequency and duration of activity. Also, healthy behaviors cluster within the same community. Results provide insight into population behaviors and facilitate effective planning of health programs at the community level.
