The Data Analysis Team (DAT) is currently composed of five team members and two principal activities: annual reports and data sources.
We prepare six annual reports on the health status and demographics of Indiana residents. These reports are used by legislators and health professionals to make critical decisions affecting the health and well-being of the citizens of Indiana. They provide information on births, deaths, marriages, maternal and child health, and other public health matters.
- The Indiana Natality Report
- The Indiana Mortality Report
- The Indiana Marriage Report
- The Indiana Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Outcomes Report
- The Indiana Induced Termination of Pregnancy Report
- The Indiana Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System Report
In addition, the DAT prepares the aggregated, public use inpatient hospital discharge files and standard U.S. population files for use by us and other agency programs.
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)
We also prepare annual BRFSS reports, newsletters, and fact sheets on health risks, prevention efforts, and chronic disease in Indiana. This information is used by various program areas throughout the Agency to measure the health status of Hoosiers and assess our progress toward more health behaviors. The data also allow comparisons with other states and national standards.
