New Public Health Data Resources

 

The Office of Epidemiology and Scientific Support (OESS) would like to make you aware of two new data resources available to our local public health partners.

 

First, is the Montana Indicator Based Information System (MT-IBIS). If you are looking for data MT-IBIS provides community snapshot reports, queries for health datasets, and topics pages

 

  • Community Snapshot Report: include demographic measures, such as percentage American Indian from the US Census Bureau along with estimates of poverty from the American Community Survey, along with health indicator measures such as diabetes admissions, heart disease mortality, and prenatal care. 

 

  • Data Queries: Users can query inpatient admission, population, vital statistics birth and death, and soon the Montana Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System and Montana Central Tumor Registry. 

 

  • Topics pages: Information on health topics such as injury, maternal and child health, and behavioral health. 

 

Montana DPHHS offers both in person and web based presentations and trainings on MT-IBIS, for more information contact Cody L. Custis at 406-444-6947 or ccustis@mt.gov.

 

The Public Health Data Resource Guide is now available on the OESS website. The purpose of this guide is to provide summary information about datasets within state government that are related to public health. We hope that this guide is useful for both government and non-government analysts or researchers who are interested in learning more about the public health data available to them. Please feel free share this guide with your colleagues. If you know of any dataset that should be added to this guide, please email Matthew Ringel at MRingel@mt.gov so that he can add those datasets to a future version of the guide.
