About This Collection
Across America, an explosion in openly available health data is transforming our ability to understand the many factors that shape our health.
The data types range from national to local and demographic to behavioral, and the sources range from public agencies, to hospitals, to creators of consumer products. Amid this proliferation, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation supports programs working to make this data as accessible and useful as possible to key audiences—from researchers, advocates and policymakers, to media and the public.
The better we are able to capture insights from health data, the more effectively we will be able to identify and address health disparities, and help all people live healthier lives.
