The USET Data Portal is a tool to help with planning and evaluating health programs by:
  • Providing comprehensive information on Tribal health;
  • Tracking and evaluating progress toward goals;
  • Guiding policy decisions, priorities and long-term strategic plans; and
  • Developing, focusing, and streamlining data collection and reporting capacity.

Informational Materials

USET has produced several informational videos and other training materials:


United States Census Bureau: My Tribal Area
The Census Bureau collects data for the American Indian and Alaska Native (AIAN) population and publishes specific counts, estimates, and statistics. My Tribal Area gives you quick and easy access to selected statistics from the American Community Survey (ACS). The ACS provides detailed demographic, social, economic, and housing statistics every year for the nation's communities. My Tribal Area is powered by the Census Application Programming Interface (API).

National Library of Medicine
Every racial or ethnic group has specific health concerns. Differences in the health of groups can result from:
  • Genetics
  • Environmental factors
  • Access to care
  • Cultural factors

Technical Definitions:

  • Age-adjustment: This is a technique that applies weights from a standard population to incidence or prevalence rates, so that populations with different age distributions can be compared correctly.
  • Community Health Profile: A comprehensive description of a community's health status and the resources available to address health needs.
  • Confidence Intervals: A range of values that an event or rate is predicted to fall within. The use of confidence intervals is recommended when comparing rates based on small numbers.
  • Incidence: Number of new events occuring in a specific time period.
  • Prevalence: Number of new AND old cases occurring in a specific time period. This is frequently used with chronic disease because the onset can be difficult to determine.
  • Primary Data: Data collected or observed from first-hand experience (e.g., medical records)
  • Proportion: A special type of ratio in which the numerator is included in the denominator.
  • Rate: A proportion where the number of events which occurred is compared to the population for which the event could have occurred, multiplied by a quantity of 10. For example, Crude Death Rate=Deaths/Population*1,000
  • Secondary Data: Data collected by someone other than the user (e.g., census, national data)
  • User Population: To be included in the user population, one must: 1) have at least one visit in the last 3 years to designated clinic; 2) live in a specific geographic area; and 3) be alive at the end of the reporting period.
