Data via the EPHT Network Portal
The data sets contained in the indicators on the EPHT main website are considered
public use data sets (PUDS). For purposes of the Tracking program, PUDS for health
and biomonitoring data are defined as data sets that are comprised of aggregated
data with all individually identifiable data or information removed and with the
remaining fields modified or suppressed so as to reduce disclosure risk as much
as reasonably possible and such that it is not possible to create any tables that
violate state or federal rules. PUDS for environmental data sets are defined as
data sets comprised of aggregated and/or summarized data which have been processed
for the purposes of interpretation and presentation of nationally consistent measures.
