Exploring AK-IBIS Datasets - Custom Query Introduction

Welcome to the AK-IBIS interactive query system. Parts of the system are temporarily unavailable during the conversion to 2.3. This system allows users to explore/query public health datasets directly. The information is intended to support evidenced-based decision making in Alaska to plan and improve service delivery, evaluate health care systems, and inform policy decisions. Other uses are not permissible. Please call Charles Utermohle at 907.269.8030 or Charles.Utermohle@Alaska.gov with your query needs.

Getting Started

Follow these four basic steps to query a dataset. For examples see the tutorials below.
  1. Select a dataset from one of the Health Surveys listed in the drop-down menu in DATASET QUERIES on the top menu bar in the upper right of the screen (or choose one below).
  2. Click on a blue bar and drill down to select a measure to query.
  3. Follow the steps to build your query.
  4. When you are done building your query, click "Submit Query" in the last step to get your results.
