Community Data Sources

The Arizona community data websites provide a great starting point for understanding issues, relationships, and trends in your community. The three geographic levels of data you will have access to (for the most part) can be broken down by state, county, and coalition. The types of output levels you can access are tables, graphs, maps, and reports.

Note: Not all data are available in every form, at every community level (e.g., zip code, street address, etc.) nor is data always up-to-date. This is mainly due to difficulties in real time, up-to-date data collection, different web-based platforms, or there may be legal or confidentiality issues in the reporting of data, especially in small populations. You are also likely to encounter time delays in the availability of data.

Community Data Training

Facts & Figures Community Data Training

The use of community, county, and state-level data is important to effectively serve local communities and allocate resources. The Arizona Substance Abuse Epidemiology Work Group (Epi Work Group), under the direction of the Governor Ducey’s Office of Youth, Faith and Family and in partnership with Arizona State University Southwest Interdisciplinary Research Center, has developed curriculum and training modules designed to introduce participants to the Community Data Project (CDP). Participants will learn how to conduct needs assessments, write grant applications, substantiate best practices, inform the public, and design effective programming evaluations. This training will introduce data elements, risk and protective factors, and other basic statistical measures. Participants are provided the opportunity to actively engage and process the information and materials in a cooperative group setting.
