Data Dashboards

The Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health (MCAH) Division creates indicator-specific dashboards for California, all designed to serve the data needs of our partners and stakeholders. State-, county- and/or regional-level indicator data are shown by various stratifications or subgroups and by year. Each dashboard also includes a link to download the data. The dashboards are organized by the five Title V health domains: Women/Maternal, Perinatal/Infant, Child, Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) and Adolescent. Click on one of the Title V domain buttons to see the list of available dashboards.

We regularly add new dashboard content to this page. Sign up for the latest MCAH news to receive updates.
