The Tracking Network has just released 60 new measures in some exciting new data additions related to community water, climate change, outdoor air toxics, asthma, and annual blood lead levels! In addition, updated content includes new communication toolkits, infographics, blogger outreach tools, and a training page.
You can search through these new data on the Tracking Network.
- Air Toxics –4 measures of air toxics data in the Outdoor Air section include benzene and formaldehyde, major contributors to cancer risk nationwide.
- Asthma –3 new measures from emergency department visits for asthma are now available.
- Blood Lead Levels –4 new measures of blood lead level are now available on the Childhood Lead Poisoning Section.
- Climate Change – 6 new measures for hospitalizations and emergency department visits from heat stress are now available.
- Community Water –30 new measures and 6 new contaminant profiles are live in the Community Water section of the Tracking Network. 90% of the U.S. population gets its water from a community water source, and these data can help you understand how the most common contaminants affect different areas of the country. Newly developed “point maps” show greater detail for yearly mean concentrations of all 9 water contaminants on the Tracking Network.
You can now access new Communication Toolkits for carbon monoxide, heart health, and women’s health. You can also find updated toolkits for birth defects, asthma, and climate change.
To address the expanding visibility and influence of blog sites, the Tracking Network added a Blogger Resources section. Materials for bloggers include easy-to-use motion maps, infographics, informational videos, and social media connections.
The Tracking Network’s new Training page includes the Tracking in Action training with real-life examples, collaboration with www.mphprogramslist.com, and link to the New Features Demonstration Video highlighting new interactive features of the Tracking Program data search function.
