Health-related data for Indiana and its counties is now available online.
 
The Indiana State Department of Health, the Indiana Hospital Association and the Indiana Business Research Center recently established a website designed to help hospitals, local health departments, nonprofits and the public gain access to the most current data on more than 90 key indicators including community health, the economy, education, environment and public safety. The website is http://www.indianaindicators.org .
 
Among other things, the website compares values for statewide and local indicators to state and national health goals and provides mapping features for viewing data at the county, township and school district levels.
