The Health Status of Texas 2014 (PDF, 12.6MB) estimates the disease burden across major population groups and describes trends over time that impact efforts to protect the health of millions of Texans.

The latest version contains 100+ graphs and charts, 50+ new maps, and a new data tables and trends section. In addition, a downloadable Health Status of Texas Supplement (Excel, 210KB) provides data from a majority of the charts and graphs throughout the report.

Texas Health Indicators Texas Health Indicators is an online collection of data displays exploring priority health trends in Texas over the last decade. In December 2014 the site was updated to include more recent data and to add several new indicators.  This initiative directly addresses two of the ten essential public health services:
  • Monitor health status to identify community health problems, and
  • Inform, educate, and empower people about health issues.
Supported in part by funds from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support under the Prevention and Public Health Fund 2012: National Public Health Improvement Initiative (NPHII).
