PETITIONED HEALTH CONSULTATION

VALLEY VILLAGE (a/k/a SOUTHWEST JEFFERSON COUNTY)
LOUISVILLE, JEFFERSON COUNTY, KENTUCKY


CONCLUSION

A review of the health outcome data suggests that the cancer incidence rate for the Valley Village area, as defined by zip code 40272, does not differ from the incidence rate for the SWHPA, Jefferson County, Kentucky, or SEER population. Similarly, the data suggest that the cancer mortality rate for the 40272 zip code area does not differ from the mortality rate in the SWHPA, Jefferson County, or Kentucky.


RECOMMENDATION

ATSDR has no recommendation for this site. However, if adverse environmental conditions reoccur in the Valley Village area, ATSDR will provide assistance to the county and local communities.
