New Resource: Incidence and Prevalence Database

The Public Health Library is happy to announce the availability of the Incidence and Prevalence Database (IPD), "the most efficient way to look at the world’s epidemiology data."

The IPD covers over 4,500 diseases, procedures, symptoms and other health issues for incidence, prevalence, morbidity, mortality, comorbidity, treated or diagnosed rates, costs and much more.

Data is fully sourced and is broken down by U.S. and international data. You can search by keyword/disease or ICD-9 code; limit by country, publication date, and/or author. Statistical summaries allow researchers the ability to see all prevalence and incidence data found in the IPD for a particular disease or procedure. In addition, the summary includes 6-year U.S. trend data for hospital inpatients, hospital outpatients, physician office visits, and emergency department visits. Summaries may be downloaded to Excel.
