NCCOR adds two data resources to website
October 11, 2012
The National Collaborative on Childhood Obesity Research (NCCOR) is pleased to announce the addition of two data collections to its list of resources from NCCOR members: the Data Hub, and the Health Indicator Sortable Stats.
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Data Hub tracks state-level data and allows users to customize and visualize facts and figures on key health and health care topics. It aims to provide timely, accessible information and evidence to inform policies and practices that help Americans lead healthier lives and get the care they need. It establishes a system of priority measures for monitoring state-level progress.
Sortable Stats is an interactive data set comprised of behavioral risk factors and health indicators. This data set compiles state level data for the 50 states, District of Columbia, and U.S. territories from various published Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and federal sources into a format that allows users to view, sort, and analyze data at state, regional, and national levels. This tool is intended to serve as a resource in the promotion of policy, system, and environmental changes. The data set is updated as new data becomes available annually.
