About the CHDB

CHDB Reports and News

The CHDB website appears to be undergoing renovation. You can search for recent CHDB reports and briefings by using the home page's "Search" box. The temporary links below point to Internet Archive-preserved versions of CHDB web pages that list reports. These will report on the 2015 SEPA HHS data and earlier years of the CHDB. (7/23/2018)

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, 2000-2018 (even years only). Great for quick facts about a ZIP Code area.

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.
