94124 — Bayview, Hunters Point

These are the leading contributors to the overall burden of disease and injury in this neighborhood, as measured by premature deaths (see main Health Outcomes page for methods and for the City as a whole).

The Bayview (94122) is unique among San Francisco neighborhoods in having violence (homicide) as the leading cause of years of lost life.

The fact that ischemic heart disease is second in this ranking should not be taken as an indication that it is less of a problem in this neighborhood. In fact, nearly half of the population of the Bayview is African American, a population with the highest rates of ischemic heart disease in the City. (Rates are good for comparing populations. Rankings like the one above, identify leading problems in a single population.) Violence affects everything in the Bayview. It means that people don't feel safe walking in the neighborhood (physical inactivity is a major determinant of ischemic heart disease and stroke. Physical inactivity also increases the likelihood of overweight/obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and high cholesterol--clinical conditions that also increase the risk of ischemic heart disease and stroke).

[Comments on other neighborhood outcomes and their determinants will be forthcoming.]
