Our Community Profiles Dashboard is a public information website developed by ADHS to provide the public with a quick, convenient no-cost data summary tool for Arizona health data. Data on the Dashboard were just recently updated and now include data from 2010 through 2015. The 2016 data are expected to be added later this year or early 2018. The dashboard allows for a range of specific health indicators of interest that are reported by counts or rates, across multiple years or by region. The tool also makes it very convenient to produce graphs and charts on the fly. If you want to learn how to use the dashboard, check out our video tutorials online.
