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.
