Details the state of health care quality and disparities in the United States. The report identifies improvements in HIV and colon cancer care, nursing home care, and medication prescribing to older adults. It notes that the numbers of people covered by health insurance and those who have a usual source of health care have increased significantly. The report also indicates that there is more to do to address disparities in care, substance abuse, and mental health issues.
Social determinants of health (SDOH)-focused data to use in patient centered outcomes research, inform approaches to address emerging health issues, and ultimately contribute to improved health outcomes. The database provides readily linkable SDOH variables across five key domain without having to access multiple source files: social context (e.g., age, race/ethnicity, veteran status), economic context (e.g., income, unemployment rate), education, physical infrastructure (e.g, housing, crime, transportation), and healthcare context (e.g., health insurance). The files can be linked to other data by geography (county, ZIP Code, and census tract).
Provides interactive views of the publicly available All of Us Research Program participant data. Currently, participant-provided information, including data from surveys, wearables, physical measurements taken at the time of participant enrollment, and electronic health records (EHR) are available. EHR data are reported by health care providers and are not participant reported. In order to protect participant privacy, the data are de-identified, limited to aggregate counts rounded up to counts of 20, and summary demographic information.
A cloud-based platform where registered researchers can access Registered and Controlled Tier data, perform queries and analysis, organize and collaborate on research projects, build datasets, and create and annotate groups of participant data.
Surveillance data on HIV infection, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB), which are available to everyone through an interactive mapping tool.
An e-learning course to explore sex- and gender-related differences in key disease areas like immunology, cardiovascular disease, and pulmonary disease. Course materials showcase examples from basic science through clinical trials and translation into practice so users can apply this knowledge when conducting research and interpreting evidence for clinical practice.
A national network of academic, public health, and community partners working together to reduce the burden of cancer, especially among those disproportionately affected.
Publicly available datasets relevant to childhood obesity research, including obesity-related health behaviors, outcomes, and determinants; and policies and environmental factors.
This index is a customized version of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry Social Vulnerability Index (CDC/ATSDR SVI). Minority Health SVI uses data from the United States Census Bureau and other public sources to help identify communities that may need support before, during, and after disasters, with a focus on minority racial, ethnic, and language groups as well as medical vulnerability.
A comprehensive list of national and international surveys on tobacco use, smoking cessation, secondhand smoke exposure, and other tobacco-related topics among youth, adults, and specific populations.
A summary of trends across measures of healthcare for Asians and Native Hawaiians/Pacific Islanders and figures illustrating select measures of healthcare access and quality.
A summary of trends across measures of healthcare in rural areas and figures illustrating select measures of healthcare in rural areas. A PowerPoint version is also available that users can download for presentations.
A source of state-level data on adults with disabilities. Access information on six functional disability types: cognitive, hearing, mobility, vision, self-care, and independent living. Explore data on more than 30 health topics - including smoking, obesity, heart disease, and diabetes - among adults with or without disabilities.
A searchable database of evidence-based cancer control programs designed to provide program planners and public health practitioners easy and immediate access to program materials in areas such as cancer screening, diet and nutrition, sun safety, and public health genomics.
This tool allows users to analyze the world’s health levels and trends in the most recent set of annually published results. Users can use maps, plots, treemaps, arrow diagrams, and a dozen other charts to compare patterns and trends in causes and risks. This data can be used to explore the health profile within a country by age and sex; to compare countries with one another; or to investigate regional or global trends. Users can drill from a global view into country views including subnational details for some countries; can examine how disease patterns have changed over time; and can explore which causes of death and disability are increasing and which are decreasing.
Visualize data and locate information critical to understanding minority health, health disparities, and their determinants. Data are collected from public health surveillance systems by using either their published reports or public use files.
CDC Health Disparities and Inequalities Reports and Strategies for Reducing Health Disparities reports that highlight effective public health programs that have reduced disparities.
Statistical software designed to generate multiple summary measures to evaluate and monitor health disparities. HD*Calc supports the use of a range of health disparities measures, allowing researchers to select and apply different measures to their data.
A collection of health services research resources in health disparities, including data, tools, statistics, funding announcements, publications, and more.
Learn about national efforts to address social determinants of health—including information about current research and resources to develop programs and policies that are informed by evidence on what's effective, replicable, scalable, and sustainable.
