Office of Health Data and Research

The Office of Health Data and Research (OHDR) supports the MSDH mission through scientific integrity and quality assurance in management, surveillance, data analysis, reporting, and program evaluation related to MCH, chronic disease, and tobacco control. The OHDR builds data capacity at the state and local levels by conducting population-based surveys and disseminating information. It supports applied health research to ensure that programs are evidence-based. The OHDR is home to the Title V MCH Block Grant, Title V Needs Assessment, the State Systems Development Initiative (SSDI), the State Asthma Program, the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS), and the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS).

The OHDR is staffed by research biostatisticians, epidemiologists, program specialists, and additional support staff. Analytic staff conduct program evaluation and produce surveillance reports, briefs, fact sheets, manuscripts and other documents as well as respond to miscellaneous internal and external data requests from programs, partners, and investigators.
