This data is compiled from over 50 sources to include information on population, demographic characteristics, social and economic characteristics, health insurance coverage, population health, healthcare workforce and healthcare resources. The Nevada Instant Atlas is an interactive and user-friendly database for public policy makers, health care professionals, rural health advocates and the general public. Hundreds of variables and outcomes are showcased in maps, graphs and data resources that can be easily downloaded and used in research reports. Users can explore accurate and current data and discover disparities between social groups and health behaviors.
