Data Request Form
Individuals may request data from Macomb County Health Department (MCHD) by completing this form. MCHD reserves the right to deny any data requests based on available resources and confidentiality standards. It may not be possible to release data at the town level, depending on the data set, the size of the city/town, and whether or not it would be acceptable to have multiple years of data combined, because of the need to maintain confidentiality.
All data requests require at least 10 business days to process. Large or complex requests will require a longer time frame for completion. MCHD recommends starting requests for confidential data a minimum of 60 days prior to the project start date.
This is not equivalent to either a FOIA or records request for your personal health information.
MCHD does not provide data entry, data collection, data cleaning, data coding, or data transcription services.
Community Health Assessment
Macomb County Health Department completed its first Community Health Assessment (CHA) in 2015 and will be working on a new CHA in 2020. You can find information on our process and read the CHA on our Community Health Assessment web page.
Macomb County Health Department utilizes a performance management system to ensure achievement of its mission, strategic plan and community health improvement plan. We want to know how well we and our partners are performing so we can adjust public health strategies accordingly. Performance management scorecards are linked on our MCHD Performance Management web page.
