Research & Statistical Data Resources

Easy access to research and statistical data for United Ways to utilize in their resource development and marketing efforts:

 

Florida-specific and County-specific Data:

  • U.S. Census Bureau "QuickFacts" (easy access to facts about people, business, and geography); Population Finder (find and compare populations of states, counties, or cities); and more.
  • Florida Statistical Abstract Online (FSAO) (Bureau of Economic and Business Research, UF) - County-specific data on population, employment, income, housing, education, etc.
  • Kids Count Data Center - Florida Indicator Data - State, county, and city-specific data via customizable indicator reports.  Search by state, county, city and by topic and subtopics (such as graduation rates).  General topic areas include demographics, economic well-being, education, family & community, health, safety & risky behaviors, with multiple - more specific - subtopics under each.
  • FedStats - Gateway to state and county statistics from more than 100 federal agencies.
  • Bureau of Economic and Business Research, University of Florida
  • Florida Office of Program Policy Analysis & Governmental Accountability (OPPAGA)
  • County Health Rankings & Roadmaps - Health rankings and data by county.
  • Data USA - "The most comprehensive visualization of U.S. Public Data"
  • Oral Health Statistical Data links:
    • The National Center for Education Statistics is the best resource for student demographic and economic information by school district and schools within a district.  (When you click on the link, enter the information for State and County and select the Search button. This will bring you to a screen that lists the school district(s) in that county. Click the School District you are seeking information about and it will populate the schools in that district on the next page. Click the Schools for this District link. Once you find the school, click the name of the school and then scroll down to the bottom of the school information page and it will tell you the number of students receiving free/reduced priced lunches.)
    • Oral Health Emergency Room Expenditures will give you county information about preventable conditions that resulted in ER visits by age and expenditures.  Also, at the lower left hand corner of the information page is a breakdown of the highest number of dental visits by zip code.  Are any of the schools in your Oral Health America grant application in this “high need” zip code?
    • Florida’s Pediatric Dental Health is an interactive state map with great information. Just mouse over your county to see the number of disadvantaged children with access to dental programs.  NOTE:  The data used for this map is from 2009; there is not a more recent one released.
