We sought to compile a comprehensive database of publicly available resources and downloadable data on a variety of emerging policy issues and common health topics.
Harvard Catalyst Policy Atlas is a living database. Our team regularly updates it by adding new relevant data and resources. If you have a suggestion for a policy data resource that would be a valuable addition, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org .
We update the Policy Atlas regularly, so most current data may be added in the next data upload. Also, it is possible that no current data have been publicly released. In this case, it’s best to contact the data repository administrator directly. If you are aware that more recent data is available, please contact us at email@example.com, so we can be sure to include it in the next update.
In this scenario, the best approach would be to use the search bar function by specifying all key terms of interest. Because some original sources may contain data that cover both prevention and treatment, reviewing a codebook for that specific data source is recommended.
One way to get started would be to type what you are looking for in the search bar on the home page. You can also select the plus sign on the left hand menu to expand the topics included. For more tips, see the “How to Use” section.
Because most policy data sources don’t contain health outcome data, we provide additional resources to publicly available health data that can be merged with policy data.
Unfortunately, broken weblinks and other website changes may occur. If you found a link that no longer works, contact the administrator of that website to inquire further.
