Below are links to catalogs of existing resources for obtaining data on contextual characteristics and policies from local to state levels that can be linked with surveys of adult health over the life course to answer key questions about U.S. health dynamics and disparities. We divide resources between “Macro” and “Local” contexts, though some resources provide data at multiple geographic levels and can be found in both catalogs.
- Macro Contexts (national, state, county, etc)
- Local Contexts (census tract, Zip code, school district)
The data catalogs include both topic tags and geography tags to facilitate searches. The following catalog includes existing resources for working with geographic data (e.g., crosswalks and boundary files) and data visualizations.
