Michigan Community Health Information

The Division for Vital Records & Health Statistics provides frequently requested regional health data through the Community Health Information website. Through this site, the user may view natality, mortality, hospitalizations, cancer incidence and other health statistics by Michigan's counties and local health departments. In addition, some vital statistics data may be available by cities and townships.

Two versions of the site exist. One site uses scripting to view the data as you select it; another version does not use scripting and is intended to be more accessible. Both sites provide the same data and you may use either site according to your preference.
