About the CHDB

CHDB Reports and News

CHDB Online Data Analysis Tool

The CHDB Online Data Analysis Tool provides quick access to selected variables from the Southeastern Pennsylvania Household Health Survey through aggregated tables. Data are aggregated for ZIP Codes within Philadelphia and Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties, 2000-2012 (even years only). Great for quick facts about a ZIP Code area.

2015 Update. The 2014-2015 Southeastern Pennsylvania Household Health Survey has been completed. The CHDB Online Data Analysis Tool should load the 2014-2015 data by early Fall 2015.

CHDB Microdata Data Sets

The CHDB Household Health Survey microdata data sets are the individual questionnaire responses from each survey cycle. Using these microdata sets will require statistical processing software such as SPSS, as individual responses are provided with statistical weighting to generate population-wide estimates.

2015 Update. The first release of 2014-2015 Southeastern Pennsylvania Household Health Survey microdata is now available!
