Student Weight Status Category Reporting Results API : Beginning 2010
This featured Application Programming Interface (API) page serves as a reference for developers who are building tools that interact with the data on Health Data NY. The page provides examples on how to retrieve data from each of the fields within the dataset. A description of each field is also provided. This specific API page is for the Student Weight Status Category Reporting Results: Beginning 2010 dataset. The Student Weight Status Category Reporting System (SWSCR) collects weight status category data (underweight, healthy weight, overweight or obese, based on BMI-for-age percentile). The dataset includes separate estimates of the percent of students overweight, obese and overweight or obese for all reportable grades within the county and/or region and by grade groups (elementary and middle/high). The rates of overweight and obesity reported are percentages based on counts of students in selected grades (Pre-K, K, 2, 4, 7, 10) reported to the NYSDOH. Because these rates reflect a broad range of factors that vary by school district, to make comparisons about observed differences in the rates of obesity and overweight between school districts requires the use of multivariate statistics.

Child And Adult Care Food Program Participation API : Beginning 2007
This featured Application Programming Interface (API) page serves as a reference for developers who are building tools that interact with the data on Health Data NY. The page provides examples on how to retrieve data from each of the fields within the dataset. A description of each field is also provided. This specific featured API page is for the Child And Adult Care Food Program: Beginning 2007 dataset. The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a nutrition education and meal reimbursement program helping providers serve nutritious and safely prepared meals and snacks to children and adults in day care settings. This dataset includes the names and locations of participating day care sites and whether or not the site is Breastfeeding Friendly Certified with CACFP, participating in the Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings (EWPHCCS) project, or participating in the Eat Well Play Hard in Day Care Homes (EWPHDCH) project. This dataset excludes Child and Adult Care Food Program participation provided at homeless shelters and legally-exempt day care home providers. Not all counties in NYS are serviced by the grantees implementing the project EWPHCSS. The EWPHDCH project is currently limited to the areas served by the contracted agencies. The Child and Adult Care Food Program dataset is related to the Child Care Related Programs dataset on the www.Open.ny.gov website, however this dataset includes additional nutrition information. The Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) is currently working to update the Child Care Related Programs dataset on a more frequent schedule with the OPEN NY team. OCFS and DOH will then be able to synchronize in the near future. Temporarily, DOH has omitted addresses for regulated child care providers that provide home care since this information is available on www.Open.ny.gov by using this link: https://data.ny.gov/Human-Services/Child-Care-Regulated-Programs/cb42-qumz. The data set is available at: https://health.data.ny.gov/Health/Child-And-Adult-Care-Food-Program-Participation-Be/dmn7-mpa8.
