A set of person-centered measures that evaluates and monitors physical, mental, and social health in adults and children. It can be used with the general population and with individuals living with chronic conditions.
This guide is designed to assist users in selecting the most appropriate method of measuring adiposity in children when conducting population-level research and/or evaluation on obesity.
Activities Completed over Time in 24-hours (ACT24) is a web-based previous-day recall instrument that was designed to estimate daily summary values for physical activity and sedentary behavior, including energy expenditure, time spent sitting and in different types and intensities of physical activity.
These maps use combined data from 2017 through 2020 from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. Survey respondents were classified as physically inactive if they reported no physical activity outside their regular job in the last month.
A webinar series focused on such topics as global implementation science, sustainability of health interventions, building capacity, and communicating implementation science.
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.
These files contain the beta version of AHRQ’s database on Social Determinants of Health (SDOH), which was created under a project funded by the Patient Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) Trust Fund. The purpose of this project is to create easy to use, easily linkable SDOH-focused data to use in PCOR research, inform approaches to address emerging health issues, and ultimately contribute to improved health outcomes.
A selection of HIV/AIDS-related data repositories, including databases, tools, and sources of research reagents.
Detailed information on a wide variety of alcohol-related policies in the United States at both State and Federal levels.
A guide to support health care providers in quickly identifying youth at risk for alcohol-related problems.
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.
Provides easy access to national and state level CDC data on a range of key indicators of health and well-being for older adults, including caregiving, subjective cognitive decline, screenings and vaccinations, and mental health. These indicators provide a snapshot of currently available surveillance information and can be useful for prioritization and evaluation of public health interventions.
List of tools to help researchers analyze data developed by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG).
Surveillance data on HIV infection, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and tuberculosis (TB), which are available to everyone through an interactive mapping tool.
Enables multiple, automatically coded, self-administered 24-hour recalls. The ASA24 system is freely available for use by researchers, clinicians, and teachers.
