Chronic Disease Evidence Based Self Management Programs (QTAC): Location, Delivery, and Capacity Data
This dataset contains information on the names and locations of evidence-based self-management programs delivered by QTAC-NY partners, including street address, city, state, zip code, county, and Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program region. It also contains information about the capacity of each implementation site to deliver specific self-management programs, as well as whether or not a particular program was delivered at a site from January 1st, 2012 through the last data update. The data will be updated on a yearly basis. Evidence-based self-management programs promoted by the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and NYS Office for the Aging, supported by QTAC-NY and delivered by health care and community based agencies throughout New York State have significantly helped people develop skills and adopt behaviors to prevent or manage chronic conditions—leading to enhanced well-being and improved health outcomes. They have also been key to developing increased community-clinical linkages and encouraging the activation of patients and community members to take a more active role in their own healthcare. To find the most current listing of programs near a specific zip code area, please visit the “Find a Workshop” section of the QTAC-NY website at https://www.ceacw.org/find-a-workshop.

Student Weight Status Category Reporting Results: Beginning 2010
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. County, regional and statewide estimates will only be provided biennially, District estimates will be updated annually.
