Epidemiology and Statistics
Preventing diseases and injuries among Defiance County residents is a primary goal for all staff at Defiance County Public Health. Our epidemiologists work hard to conduct disease and injury surveillance through ongoing collection, analysis, and reporting of public health data. These assessments are used to characterize the Who, What, When, Where, and Why of public health issues that are important to our community. Click the links below to view the epidemiology reports.
Data dashboards are interactive charts and graphs that share general statistics on births, deaths and other community concerns. The dashboards were created to give the community an estimate of what is going on within Defiance County. Within the dashboards, you can filter different data points to get the specific data you are looking for. There is a small eraser icon on the top right of each filter box which will allow you to clear your choices. If you have any questions on the data dashboards, please contact Defiance County Public Health.
