About the Custom Query System: Contents and UsageThe NJSHAD Query System provides a simple-to-use interface that allows users to step through data selection options and perform custom queries of New Jersey's public health databases.
What Is a Custom Data Query?A custom data query is an interface (set of pages) where the user can select a dataset (e.g., birth) and a measure (e.g, count) and then limit the results to a year, age group, county, etc. to obtain specific data. Available datasets are listed below as well as on the left navigation buttons. Measures can include rates, counts, survey topics, top 10 lists, averages, etc. The limiting selections depend on the dataset. For example, mortality data can be limited by year, cause of death, age, gender, and geography (county, municipality).
