Interact and Visualize

The NYC Department of Health makes data available to researchers and the public through various interactive tools. The following three data tools offer instant access to hundreds of health indicators that can be manipulated and analyzed to answer your research and health questions.

What's New in Data Tools

The Health Department recently revamped the interactive EpiQuery tool to include more sophisticated and dynamic data visualizations. In addition, we have launched the Community Health Profiles tool, which allows you to explore the health of your neighborhood and compare it with other communities across the city.

  • The Community Health Profiles tool provides neighborhood-level health data, accompanied by data visualizations and narrative explanation. You can select one of 59 community districts to see data on social, economic, housing and neighborhood conditions; maternal and child health; and health behaviors, access and outcomes. You can also compare communities to gain a greater understanding of health inequities.

  • The Environment and Health Data Portal is focused on NYC environmental factors and provides downloadable data with data stories, visualizations and narrative explanation. It includes over 200 environmental health indicators across eight topics: outdoor air and weather, built environment, pests and pesticide use, food and drink, environmental sustainability, health outcomes, behavior and social factors.

  • EpiQuery allows users to analyze and visualize data from surveys, disease reports and vital records, as well as download customized reports. You can filter data by sex, race and ethnicity, age group, borough or neighborhood, area-based poverty and other stratifications. You can use the tool to explore relationships and trends across health behaviors, health care access and chronic health conditions.
