The Arizona Health Survey can serve as an excellent resource for policy makers looking to find state-specific data about the health and well-being of Arizonans. For far too long policy makers have had to rely on state estimates of national research. Arizona Health Survey represents a fresh, broad and deep new source.
The survey has a wide range of variables, from standard measures of health and demographics, to questions about a person’s lifestyle or behavior, environmental factors affecting health, and more. Such data can help inform research and analysis. Our data is intended to be shared.
Arizona Health Survey does more than simply describe the health status of individuals living in our state. It also provides data that can help us understand the reasons behind why Arizonans are (or are not) achieving health and well-being.
