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.

Keywords: restaurant, food, inspection, violation, oph, public health
This data includes the name and location of active food service establishments and the violations that were found at the time of the inspection. Active food service establishments include only establishments that are currently operating. This dataset excludes inspections conducted in New York City (http://www.nyc.gov/html/doh/html/rii/index.shtml), Suffolk County (http://apps.suffolkcountyny.gov/health/Restaurant/intro.html) and Erie County. Inspections are a “snapshot” in time and are not always reflective of the day-to-day operations and overall condition of an establishment. Occasionally, remediation may not appear until the following month due to the timing of the updates. Update frequencies and availability of historical inspection data may vary from county to county. Some counties provide this information on their own websites and information found there may be updated more frequently. This dataset is refreshed on a monthly basis. The inspection data contained in this dataset was not collected in a manner intended for use as a restaurant grading system, and should not be construed or interpreted as such. Any use of this data to develop a restaurant grading system is not supported or endorsed by the New York State Department of Health.

Keywords: coalitions, community collaboration, partnerships, minority health, health disparities, public health
This dataset promotes community collaborations and increases partnerships with non-traditional, non-health focused partners. Users can explore where the Department of Health funded coalitions are located and the service areas they cover. A health coalition is defined as "a group involving multiple sectors of the community; coming together to identify community needs and solve community problems." The information is useful for program planning, as well as to develop targeted interventions. Additionally, the general public is able to identify projects within or near their communities.

Keywords: bmi, chronic disease, childhood obesity, swscr
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.
