The wait is over! HHDW unveiled its new, improved website, including an excellent data query tool that puts the power in the user’s hands. The traditional HHDW reports are still available for all six data sources and the searching capacity remains unchanged. Users can find detailed data on over 600 different health measures by searching by category, data source, or Healthy People 2020 topic area. The Leading Health Indicator reports by county and by race/ethnicity are also still present.
However, the addition of Hawaii-IBIS (Indicator Based Information System) gives users the ability to perform real-time data queries using parameters they set.

It allows users to examine health measures by a range of demographic and geographic dimensions. The ‘Display by’ feature lets users create charts and tables tailored to their specific needs.

The Hawaii Health Data Warehouse routinely publishes reports from several data sources, including Vital Statistics and several surveillance programs.

Validating the reports involves getting approval for the differences in numbers and formatting preferences between the data providers and HHDW reports. Differences in numbers could result from the dates of data retrieval or reporting dates, statistical tools used, and rounding or comparison methodologies.Read more >
