DATA PORTAL Report Generator (query system) Contents and Usage

The DATA PORTAL query system provides a simple-to-use interface that allows a user to perform custom queries of USET's public health databases.

A default report will be generated as soon as a user selects an item from the Datasets Index page.

Once the "results" page is displayed:
  • A user may select a graph from one of the selections near the top of the results page.
  • A user may "Modify the Query Definition" using that tab located near the top of the results page.

Selecting the "Modify the Query Defintion" tab brings up the query builder page. This page lets a user step through the data selection options (steps) to modify the default report.

What is a custom query or custom report?

A custom query is an interface (Web pages) where the user can select a dataset (e.g., death) and a measure (e.g., count) and then limit or aggregate the results by year, age group, gender, etc. to obtain data in a table and/or graph or chart. Measures can include rates, counts, top 10 lists, averages, etc. The available selections for filtering the data and defining cross-tabulations depends on what is available in the data set.

Basic steps to follow:

  1. Select a measure. Click on one of the selections on the Datasets Index page This will automatically run the default report or query.
  2. Modify your Query Definition. From the results page use the tabs near the top of the page to select or change a chart, and use the "Modify Query Definition" tab to modify your query selections or start a new query.
  3. Submit query. After you have finished making selections from the Query Builder page, click on the "Submit Query" tab near the top of the page, or the "Submit" button near the bottom of the selectcion steps to run your query.
