The Portal for Comprehensive Health Data in Texas

The Center for Health Statistics (CHS) has a web-based query system called Texas Health DataThis interactive site allows users to query DSHS public health datasets to obtain statistical reports and summaries.

Texas Health Data (THD) is currently available with a limited number of updated datasets, including birth, hospital quality indicators, and the Health Facts Profiles. THD will ultimately consolidate many of the current CHS query systems including the Indicators of Inpatient Care, Behavioral Risk Factor and Youth Risk Behavior query systems. 

CHS is actively seeking feedback about the new Texas Health Data site and would like users to send comments, suggestions, and/or questions via email.
