Health Indicators Warehouse Opens Government Data To The Public
The Department of Health and Human Services is providing data they hope will be used to create applications and services that promote better health.
The United States Department of Health and Human Services Community Health Data Initiative has created a “data hub” called the Health Indicators Warehouse (HIW). Like Data.gov, HIW offers high quality data for public use in hopes to give citizens a better understanding of public health. The data is focused on health, and is culled from the Department of Health and Human Services and maintained by the Center for Disease Control’s National Center for Health Statistics.
The Indicators are organized by Topic, Geography or Initiative. This allows users to access data on county, state and national levels, or by topics such as demographics or health risk factors.
