The Hawaii State Department of Health launched a new Web site that gathers health-related data and makes it available to the public.
The data at healthyhawaii2010.org presents the most comprehensive picture available of factors that could affect the health of Hawaii's residents, the department said Tuesday.
"We are equipping the public with data so that together we can work on improving health for everyone in Hawaii," department Director Chiyome Fukino said. "For the first time, the public will have easy access to updated, comprehensive Department of Health data and can compare differences in health among Hawaii's ethnicities, geographical areas and varying income and education levels."
The site is composed of reports generated from a new database that contains information from six sources, including national surveys and data collected by the Department of Health.
