The Department of Public Health (PDPH) collects, analyzes, and reports on a wide variety of health data. This information guides the development of PDPH’s programs and policies. It also helps the broader health care community understand and address Philadelphia’s health challenges.

Anyone can request health data from the PDPH, including members of the public.

If you want to use the data for formal research, the Institutional Review Board and the Health Commissioner’s Office Review Committee may need to review your request.
