Local and State Health Data


The best approaches to addressing the specific health needs of the community or service area are based on population health data. The following references may help locate data for evaluating specific community needs.

The Kansas Information for Communities (KIC) system gives users the chance to prepare their own queries for vital event and other health care data. KIC programs allow you to generate your own table for specific characteristics, year of occurrence, age, race, sex, and county. http://kic.kdhe.state.ks.us/kic/
