The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) collects and evaluates thousands of health statistics to measure progress toward state and national health objectives. These numbers also provide the basis for developing and implementing public health strategies for disease prevention and health promotion. This site provides just some of the statistics gathered by IDPH.

DISEASE STATISTICS

IDPH conducts surveillance and implements control activities for reportable communicable diseases. State regulations require physicians, other health care providers and others to report certain diseases to local health departments, which, in turn, report the information to IDPH. Generally, reportable diseases meet two criteria -- the cause is due to a specific disease-producing agent and there is a public health intervention for prevention of other cases. Data on more than 100,000 cases of infectious and communicable diseases reported annually to IDPH are used to administer prevention and control programs.

CHILDHOOD LEAD POISONING SURVEILLANCE REPORT

In 1993, state-mandated screening for childhood lead poisoning in children 6 years of age and younger began. Physicians and other health care providers have conducted 2.4 million lead tests and reported about 270,000 children with elevated lead levels. The numbers of elevated and normal test results are used to identify areas where effort is needed to combat lead poisoning. 1993 - 1994, 1995 - 1996, 1997 - 1998, 1999 - 2000, 2000 - 2001, 2001 - 2002, 2002 - 2003, 2003 - 2004, 2004 - 2005 or 2005 - 2006

Health Indicators


Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Data Reporting System

This interactive data system supports querying of four statewide databases, providing health related descriptive information at the state, EMS region, and county level. These databases include the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Death Certificate Database, IDPH Trauma Registry Database, Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) Traffic Crash Database and the Illinois Hospital Association (IHA) Hospital Discharge Database.


ILLINOIS PREGNANCY RISK ASSESSMENT MONITORING SYSTEM (PRAMS)

* Provisional tabulations for births represent the collective events of Illinois residents who have a record on file in the Illinois Vital Records System (IVRS). Although all birth events that occur in Illinois are required to be registered within seven days, provisional tallies of birth certificates may be inaccurate for any of the following reasons: incomplete certificate information, late filing (e.g., some home births), reports or records not yet received for Illinois residents whose mothers gave birth while outside of Illinois, duplicate records filed, and other ongoing record and/or data clean-up processes. In general, the tallies for the most recent periods are less accurate compared to the eventual final numbers, once all reporting and record clean-up processes are complete, and the calendar year birth file is closed for statistical purposes.

** Provisional tabulations for deaths represent the collective events of Illinois residents who have a record on file in the Illinois Vital Records System (IVRS). Although all death events that occur in Illinois are required to be registered with IDPH, provisional tallies of death certificates may be inaccurate for any of the following reasons: incomplete certificate information, late filing (e.g., investigations regarding coroner or medical examiner cases), reports or records not yet received for Illinois residents who died while outside of Illinois, duplicate records filed, and other ongoing record and/or data clean-up processes. In general, the tallies for the most recent periods are less accurate compared to the eventual final numbers, once all reporting and record clean-up processes are complete, and the calendar year death file is closed for statistical purposes.
