Introduction

The continuing and systematic collection, analysis, and interpretation of population data are essential to prioritizing and directing public health activities.  Accurate and timely surveillance data allow states to assess disease burden, identify disparate populations, guide interventions, inform policy making, and measure program effectiveness.  Surveillance data can also help identify emerging health problems, and are essential to effectively and efficiently allocate resources.

The TACP utilizes the following data sets to estimate prevalence and demographic trends, healthcare utilization, and quality of life indicators:

  • Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)
  • Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS)
  • Texas Health Care Information Collection (THCIC), Inpatient Hospital Discharge Public Use Data File
  • Vital Statistics Mortality Data
  • Medicaid Reimbursement Claims
  • Texas Emergency Department Asthma Surveillance (TEDAS)
  • Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS)
  • Center for Health Statistics (CHS) Population Data
