Health Data / Landscape
Health Data in Texas - Where We Are:
The THI Landscape Project was developed in 2000 as a data resource designed to provide organizations and individuals with comprehensive information they can use to better understand and improve the health of Texas residents and Texas communities. The Project brought together a wide range of data on more than 220 health, social and economic indicators for each of the state’s 254 counties, Texas as a whole and the United States. These indicators were grouped in such categories as “demographics”, “socioeconomic data”, “chronic and communicable disease”, and “environmental health.” In aggregate, these indicators create the health landscape for an individual county, a metropolitan service area, a geographic region, or the entire state.
Today, the data originally collected is stale and needs to be updated in order to be relevant for further analysis purposes. THI is currently seeking funding to undertake the extensive research needed to update the database. When funding is attained and research completed, the database will be added to this website for the review and use of individuals and organizations seeking comprehensive, statewide health data.
