Health Statistics and Health Research Database    Facebook Twitter

The database of health statistics and health research is a method of electronic publication of health-related statistics and survey results.

Using the database is free of charge. Please refer to the source when using the data!

The database consists of seven main areas divided into sub-areas. The data tables included in the sub-areas are assigned unique codes that simplify searching the data. The data tables presented in the database can be both viewed in the Internet environment, and downloaded using different file formats (.px, .xls, .dbf, .txt). You can download the detailed database user manual here (.pdf).

The database is constantly updated with new data. Dates of updating the existing data tables and adding new data are provided in the release calendar. The date of the last update to each table is provided after the title of the table in the list of data tables.

A contact person for each sub-area is provided under the "Definitions and Methodology" link of each sub-area, so you can ask additional information about the data published in the database. Contact this person for any further questions and data requests.
