The Kentucky Public Health Data Resource Guide provides easy access to public health data sourced to a variety of Kentucky-specific health-related surveys, surveillance systems and registries. Access to this data results in more effective public health decision making and research. The information provided on each data source includes types of data collected and data strengths and limitations. Contact information is provided for every resource and most contain web links for access to data available online.
While this guide is intended to promote access to public health data, some data sources are highly confidential and cannot be released to the public. Program coordinators and data analysts follow the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act guidelines when disseminating data. As a result, full data sets may not be available for all data sources presented. However, data summaries and reports should be available for most sources.
