Six steps of Urban HEART

STEP 4: Generate evidence

  • Using your indicator set, the data you have assembled and simple charting and graphing software, the team can produce easy-to-read charts (the MATRIX and the MONITOR) to illustrate health inequities in your city.
  • Start by developing the MATRIX. Use the MATRIX to identify priority indicators that should also be reviewed through the MONITOR.
  • Be sure to register numeric results for each indicator, in addition to using colour codes. This will help stakeholders to understand the relative urgency of different problems.
