The Kentucky Public Health Data Resource Guide was developed to promote access to public health data. Providing easy access to these data resources allows for more effective public health decision making and research. As a result, a variety of Kentucky-specific health-related surveys, surveillance systems and registries are described in this guide. The information provided on each data source includes the types of data collected and data strengths and limitations. Contact information is provided for every resource and most contain web links for access to publicly available data 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.
