Indicator-based Information System for Public Health (IBIS-PH) Topics

How to find Data and Information on this Site

Each "Topic" site menu navigation item has a page that contains information for each topic. Along with this information are links to Data Resource pages, associated Indicator Reports and Dataset Queries. The Indicator Reports provide graphs, maps, public health context, and data tables. Some of the topic areas have queryable datasets that you can use to create your own tables, charts, and maps. These data query results pages will also have dataset details, including data sources and tips on how data can or cannot be used.

The Alaska Health Status Model

The AK-IBIS Topics pages are organized according to a model of health status in which Health Factors lead to Health Outcomes. See the Topics Index for a complete list of all available topics.

Alaska Model of Health Status, Population Characteristics, Risk and Resiliency Factors and Clinical Services lead to Population Health Outcomes

As the model suggests, health factors are the conditions that lead to health outcomes. Some health factors, such as race and age, cannot be modified but are included in the model because they play a role in individual and population health outcomes. Many health factors, on the other hand, can be modified. One of the roles of public health practitioners is to work with individuals and communities to improve modifiable health factors so that health outcomes will improve.
