Abstract

The purpose of this research was to conduct an assessment in support of the facilitation of access to public health data and information in Nebraska. This was accomplished by surveying public health stakeholders on their data needs and priorities. Appropriate quantitative and qualitative statistical analyses were used to draw sound conclusions on respondents' data needs and priorities. Most commonly-accessed sources of public health information, most needed health data resources, and most important data sets and corresponding data aggregates were identified and explored for opportunities to improve public health practice in Nebraska.
