Public Health Data Warehouse (PHD)

PHD is a unique research tool that provides access to timely, linked, multi-year data enabling analysis of health priorities and trends, such as the current opioid epidemic.

The Department of Public Health created the PHD in 2017, in an unprecedented effort to link many data sets across state government to effectively address public health priorities, with an initial focus on opiate overdoses. Public and private partnerships help the Office of Population Health identify and answer key questions to produce public health information for policymaking.
