Many states have their own systems for reporting data. Usually these systems include births, deaths, marriages, and divorces. A core public health function is statewide injury data collection and analysis. This data collection provides data for mortality statistics found on most state public health web sites. Check individual state public health department web sites to find what is provided. Often local statistics are available by census tract, community, county, and region. Cities and regions are also providing Internet access to data.
SHADAC, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, helps states monitor rates of health insurance coverage and to understand factors associated with uninsurance. SHADAC provides targeted policy analysis and technical assistance to states that are conducting their own health insurance surveys and/or using data from national surveys.
Health Status Indicators
The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps (CHR&R ) program is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. A collaboration of CHR&R with Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) in now in one central location (August 31, 2017).
Effective August 31, 2017, Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) will no longer be supported, but CHR&R will now allow nationwide comparison of counties with similar populations based on key demographic, social, and economic indicators. This important collaboration allows CHR&R to deliver popular functionality of both CHSI and CHR&R products in one central location.
