Minnesota Public Health Data

Minnesota Public Health Data Access is an online portal within the Minnesota Department of Health website that provides access to “health and environment” data.  Librarians, students, and the public can now access and download data for use in research projects, grant applications, and for public awareness.

Minnesota developed this portal in collaboration with the National Tracking Network which includes data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 23 states, and New York City.  Nationally consistent data and measures may be used to compare trends over time and geographic patterns at the county, state, and national level.
