Piloting an Environmental Public Health Tracking Tool for North Carolina

Piloting an Environmental Public Health Tracking Tool for North Carolina

2020

Our team members have spent the summer working with the North Carolina Division of Public Health Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch to build a pilot environmental public health data dashboard, with the hope that the pilot tool will be used in DPH’s grant proposal to the CDC for a fully-funded tool. The pilot tool, which is a Tableau dashboard, displays population, health, and environmental data for North Carolina counties and census tracts. The project involved data processing in R, the creation of a detailed metadata table, and building interactive visualizations Tableau.
