Community Health Assessment Data Sources

Datasets are maintained by the office that has programmatic responsibility for that particular topic. At this time, only vital events data are queryable in the NJSHAD system. Therefore, if you need a wide range of data for a given community you will have to get it from the various data sources within and outside the Department of Health.
