Indicators related to community include social connections and crime. Social associations are one way to measure social connectivity and social cohesion in a community. Lack of social connectivity and resulting isolation can influence health outcomes of individuals and community. The number of membership organizations such as service organizations like Rotary or Zonta, sports groups, political organizations, clubs and professional organizations indicate volunteerism and connectivity. The rate of such associations in Curry County (2014) is 11.5 per 100,000 population, higher than Oregon’s average of 10.4 per 100,000, a strength in the county.
