Census: web-based survey.
The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) fields the ASTHO Profile of State and Territorial Public Health. The Profile is the only comprehensive source of information about state and territorial public health agency activities, structure, and resources. First fielded and published in 2007, the Profile aims to define the scope of state and territorial public health services, identify variations in practice among state and territorial public health agencies, and contribute to the development of best practices in governmental public health. The Profile highlights descriptive findings from each survey round; provides comparisons of agencies by governance classification, geographic region, and state population size; and includes summaries of the structure and priorities of individual state and territorial agencies.
State and territorial health agencies in the United States (U.S.), U.S. territories, and U.S. freely associated states.
