In 2001 a study of 118 persons with different social and ethnic backgrounds defined community as "a group of people with diverse characteristics who are linked by social ties, share common 1 perspectives, and engage in joint action in geographical locations or settings." One element of community was identified as a "sense of place,something that could be located and described, denoting a sense of locale or boundaries." A community is an identifiable area or location, such as a city, a village, a neighborhood, or even a workplace. This study also identified "sharing common interests and perspectives" as part of belonging to a community. As members of a community, we share our values, norms, religion, interests, worries, needs, happiness, and suffering with the other members of our community. Many times these commonalities have existed for years, if not for centuries.

Three classfications of a community are as follows: -a fixed and bounded reality -a local social system -a type of social relationship

Definitions of a Healthy Community

There are many definitions of a healthy community. The Healthy People 2010 strategy describes a healthy community as one that includes those elements that enable people to maintain a high quality of life and productivity. Some of the elements described in Healthy People in Healthy Communities: A Community Planning Guide Using Healthy People 2010 include: access to health care services that focus on both treatment and prevention for all members of the community; a safe community; the presence of roads, schools, playgrounds, and other services to meet the needs of the people in that community; and a healthy and safe environment. Healthy People 2020 MAP-IT: A Guide To Using Healthy People 2020 in Your Community provides a framework for implementation. The Centers for Disease Control defines healthy communities in its Designing and Building Healthy Places page as "A community that is continuously creating and improving those physical and social environments and expanding those community resources that enable people to mutually support each other in performing all the functions of life and in developing to their maximum potential."
