Birth and Death by Social Determinants of Health Query Measure Selection

Social Determinants of Health Queries

This query allows users to stratify birth outcomes by census tract level measures of the social determinants of health. The use of socio-demographic variables for routine analysis of public health data is currently recommended by the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists. For more information on the methods used to construct these variables, please see the Census Tract-Level Poverty presentations on the CSTE Webinar Library at [http://www.cste.org/?page=WebinarLibrary].
