Announcing the New Virginia Rural Health Data Portal

The Virginia Rural Health Data Portal puts information, that was once scattered, in one place and in your hands. Create, print and download maps, charts and graphs. Now you have the tools to tell your rural health story.

The Virginia Rural Health Data Council, in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Health and the Virginia Rural Health Association, are pleased to introduce the Virginia Rural Health Data Portal, a web-based tool that has been developed to provide a unique source of information on topics of special interest to rural health providers, researchers, grant writers, and others interested in telling their story on health issues facing rural populations in Virginia. The data currently presented in the portal are related to the issues and strategies defined in the Virginia State Rural Health Plan. It is anticipated that as additional issues are studied, new data sets will be added to the site. In addition, there will be several improvements added in the next few weeks, so check back often!
