California County MCAH Data

Databooks are excel spreadsheet files that include rates and trends for key MCAH indicators. Data are given at the county and region level and include comparisons to statewide rates. 

Databooks have multiple pages of data and information, including County/Regional numbers, State numbers, definitions, data quality, rates, and graphs, for different racial/ethnic groups and across several years. We strongly encourage you to consult the materials from the County Data Spreadsheets webinar training before using the databooks as well as the publication: Title V 5-Year Needs Assessment Indicators: DATABOOK 2000 to 2011. Please read these documents that pertain to important changes in methods for calculating some indicators derived from the birth certificate for the 2013 data. Contact FHOP with any questions.

Note: Databooks are confidential. Please contact FHOP if you want permission to access these files.


FHOP has produced 3 race/ethnic data quality databooks for local health jurisdictions for birth certificate data, hospital patient discharge data and hospital emergency department data.
