The ASPPH Data Center is a valuable resource for conducting analysis on data from CEPH-accredited ASPPH members and other sources.

A Brief History

The ASPPH Data Center was formed in 1974 to implement an annual data collection system that would gather data from CEPH-accredited ASPPH members which could be evaluated, analyzed, and reported as uniform, accurate information. Since 1974, reporting has increased from 21 institutions to over 100, and the data collection strategies have moved from paper-and-pencil to online data analytics.

Data Sources

ASPPH analyzes both ASPPH and publicly available data sources. The ASPPH Data Center’s annual data collection includes faculty data, operating budgets including federal grants and contracts, and admissions, student, graduate, and employment data. SOPHAS, the centralized application service for members, is a rich source of data on applicants. In addition, the ASPPH Data Center uses data from the National Center for Education Statistics to track general trends in education in public health. Resources Data Request Form

Dean Blakely's Welcome Note

“ASPPH’s wealth of data on education in public health provides important information for members and the field of public health. Over the last few years, ASPPH has harnessed the power of this data through online data collections and analytics, enabling members to make high-level decisions efficiently and adapt to the ever-evolving landscape of higher education. Some of these online dashboards are now publicly available (see below).

The Data Advisory Committee guides ASPPH on the collection, analysis, and dissemination of information on ASPPH members. In addition to aligning the ASPPH annual data collection with the Council on Education for Public Health data requirements, the committee has been instrumental in developing new targeted data collections, such as the graduate employment project.

We welcome you to explore the data resources and dashboards. Thank you for your interest in the ASPPH Data Center.”
