Health Data Resources

Epidemiology is the study of the causes and occurrences of disease and disability in the community and the application of this study to the control of health problems.  This includes the investigation of outbreaks of communicable diseases, as well as the study of chronic illnesses.  Information gathered through epidemiological studies and surveillance, along with district, state, and national data is collected, analyzed, and disseminated through reports and newsletters.

In addition to monitoring and investigating communicable diseases in Fayette County, the Epidemiology section of the health department is tasked with providing health data to the public and to agencies to inform decisions.  In some instances this data is taken from other sources such as the US Census, and in other instances it is collected by the health department.
