Health Indicators Warehouse

Health Indicators Warehouse has been added to the Epidemiology research guide (statistics).  A relatively new  resource, HIW aims to provide access to high quality data to improve the understanding of a community’s health status and determinants, and to facilitate the prioritization of interventions. It serves as the data hub for the HHS Community Health Data Initiative, a flagship HHS open government initiative to release data; encourage innovative application development; and catalyze change to improve community health.

Use the database to search by topic, geography, or initiative or by indicators, such as demographics or chronic diseases and conditions.

HIW is a collaboration of agencies within the Department of Health and Human Services and is maintained by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics.
