The Center for Public Health Systems (CPHS) has developed multiple dashboards to support practitioners, researchers, and students in understanding key data for public health education, workforce characteristics and demographics, and local systems and services.
Maps of U.S. Public Health Programs
Using data obtained from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), a resource through the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), this dashboard maps public health programs across the U.S. and provides details on graduation outcomes from those institutions. The dashboard includes fields to describe the data, including race and ethnicity, state, degree level, locale and institution size, and other fields.
Public Health Graduates in the U.S.
Using IPEDS data, this dashboard characterizes graduates from U.S. public health programs from 1992-2019 according to degree level, program concentration, gender, race and ethnicity, and other factors. It also shows the quantity of public health graduates relative to state population for all U.S. states.
Rise of Undergraduate Public Health
Using IPEDs data, this dashboard seeks to explain the rapid rise in bachelor’s degrees in public health beginning around 2003. The dashboard includes fields to describe the data, including program concentration, gender, race and ethnicity, profit status, accreditation status, and other fields.
Debt and Earnings of Public Health Graduates
Using data obtained from NCES, this dashboard compares average federal debt and first year earnings of graduates from U.S. public health programs to other degree types. It also highlights differences in Earnings Ratios by individual programs and by characteristics such as U.S. News & World Report ranking.
