Health Data Visualization

Washington Tracking Network Dashboards

These Washington Tracking Network dashboards contain interactive maps, charts and graphs that allow you to explore a wide range of data for Washington State.

Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS)

Explore results from the Behavioral Risk Factors Surveillance Survey, such as chronic disease, cancer screening, injuries, mental health, access to healthcare, obesity, exercise, immunization, demographics, and tobacco, alcohol, and marijuana use. Data is available by Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) and Local Health Jurisdiction (LHJ).

Biomonitoring

Explore biomonitoring data, including organic and inorganic arsenic, metals and pesticide metabolites.

Biomonitoring data provide information on the total amount of environmental chemicals that enter the body from all possible sources by measuring environmental chemicals or their breakdown products (metabolites).

Birth Outcomes

Explore birth data dashboards on birth counts and rates, fertility patterns and maternal and infant health characteristics. Birth statistics are available for 2003 onward at the state, county and Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) levels. Use these data to examine trends in fertility rates and to compare birth risk factors across counties.

Community Report

The Washington Tracking Network's (WTN) Community Report tool allows you to see a variety of health measures for a given geography. Currently the Community Report is available as a downloadable table. We plan to build on this tool to also include data visualization dashboards for health outcomes, health behaviors, and access and preventive care topics.

Death

Explore data dashboards on leading causes of death by age group, sex, and race/ethnicity. Death statistics are available for 2000 onwards at both the State, County and Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) levels. Use these data to examine trends in mortality rates and to compare disease mortality across counties.

Demographics

Explore population counts by age, gender, race, and ethnicity. You can see these at the county, Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) and census tract levels.

You can download the data as well as compare state rates with county rates (and ACH) side by side.

Fish Advisories

Explore state-wide fish consumption advisories for both fresh water and marine areas. Filter by body of water and see such things as fish species, contaminants and how much the Department of Health advises to eat of each fish type depending on location. See the information in tables as well as on maps.

Fish is good for you and part of a healthy diet. The key is to make smart choices. Choose fish that are low in mercury and other contaminants – “Eat fish, be smart, choose wisely.”

Healthcare-Associated Infection (HAI)

Explore dashboards for the healthcare-associated infection (HAI) C. difficile (CDI). Hospitals report cases of CDI to the Washington State Department of Health.

Explore information on Multi-Drug Resistant Organisms (MDROs) in on our dashboards for bacteria and organisms that are resistant to carbapenems. Carbapenems are class of antibiotics that are usually reserved for multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.

HIV

Explore HIV dashboards showing data for HIV incidence, late diagnosis, linkage to care, prevalence, and viral load suppression. You can view these measures at the state, county and Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) levels.

Immunizations

Explore child and adolescent immunizations rates by county and Accountable Communities of Health (ACH), vaccine type and age group. Dashboards for both Public Health Measures as well as Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) are available to view. Both are a way to track vaccination completion rates.

Immunizations are a safe and effective way to keep people of all ages from getting many serious and sometimes deadly diseases.

Explore school rates.

Marriage and Divorce

Explore marriage and divorce dashboards showing data on marriages and divorces that took place within Washington. You can view these measures at the state and county levels.

Marijuana and Tobacco Use

Explore marijuana and tobacco use percentages for Washington state by county and Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) and a variety of demographic and health issues. The dashboards display data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) survey.

Opioids

Explore Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) data on controlled substances as well as fatal and non-fatal drug overdose data in our opioid dashboards. You can view these at the county and Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) levels.

Our dashboards can be used to examine opioid prescriptions and morbidity and mortality due to drug overdose to raise awareness of the opioid epidemic among Washington state residents.

Pregnancy and Abortion

Explore pregnancy and abortion data dashboards. The dashboards present data at County and ACH level for fertility, pregnancies, live births and abortions. Each dashboard displays rate and counts and viewed together, they tell a story of fertility and reproductive health in Washington state.

Ticks

Explore tick dashboards showing data based on tick submissions from the general public. You can view information about species, location, and activity in which the tick was encountered.

Social Determinants of Health

Explore economic and social conditions that influence health status, known as social determinants of health, such poverty, education, limited English, unemployed and uninsured. These are shown by age, gender, race and ethnicity. County, Accountable Communities of Health (ACH) and census tracts are available for viewing.

The factors that make up social determinants of health help explain why some people experience worse health outcomes than others.
