The Portal for Comprehensive Health Data in Texas

The Center for Health Statistics (CHS) has released the new Texas Health Data web-based query system.  This interactive site allows users to query DSHS public health datasets to obtain statistical reports and summaries.

Texas Health Data (THD) is currently available with a limited number of updated datasets, including population, birth, hospital quality indicators, and the Health Facts Profiles. THD will ultimately consolidate many of the current CHS query systems including the legacy Texas Health Data , Indicators of Inpatient Care, and the Behavioral Risk Factor and Youth Risk Behavior query systems. While current data are being added to THD exclusively, existing systems and the historical data they contain will remain available to users until the data have been moved to the new query system.

CHS is actively seeking feedback about the new Texas Health Data site and would like users to send comments, suggestions, and/or questions via email.

*Patient age distributions for abortion data collected for 2006 to 2015 have been updated. In the previous version, age was calculated by subtracting the patient's birth year from the year of the procedure (year-to-year). In these updated tables, age is calculated by subtracting the patient's full date of birth from the full date of procedure (date-to-date).
