Updates to CDOH measures

February 6, 2024

IPUMS CDOH has updated 13 measures and added one new measure related to contextual determinants of health. We have added data from additional time periods to 13 of our measures, and we added a measure related to same-sex households using county-level data from the 2020 U.S. Decennial Census. Extending measures to cover more time periods allows scientists to match CDOH data up with datasets collected at different points in time.
