    • Description:
      This document was first published in March 2008, setting the standards for the first Nationally Consistent Data and Measures (NCDM) for the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (Tracking Program). The purpose of these NCDM was to develop standardized data and measures for understanding the impact of our environment on our health and to establish the beginnings of the National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network (Tracking Network). Subsequent updates to this document were made to: • Include the lessons learned in implementing the first NCDM across local, state, and national tracking networks • Improve the utility of specific measures • Identify temporal and spatial resolution recommendations and requirements, specifically for health outcomes, based on confidentiality protection needs and data steward requests • Expand the description of the process for creating and adopting the first set of NCDM • Update existing measures to adopt new standards or data changes, address gaps, or improve their utility • Add new measures to new or existing content areas This new document modifies the existing NCDM requirements to correspond to the 2016 to 2020 Tracking Program Strategic Plan and to the 2017 funding opportunity for state, local, and territorial health departments. The new NCDM requirements reduces the amount of required NCDM measures for grantees’ public portals, maintains NCDM data feeds to CDC, and adds NCDM data requirements for grantees’ data repositories. This change allows for more flexibility, ensures access to key datasets, and places more emphasis on improving the utility and accessibility of data for informing environmental public health decision-making. ncdm_requirements_april2017.pdf
