Data

We offer a diverse collection of high-value data sets and partner with several data sources around the world. 

PHS Data

Effective population health research requires rich and diverse data with opportunities for potential linkage and long-term follow-up. Stanford PHS offers access to a growing portfolio of population-level data to Stanford researchers and affiliates. These diverse data covering precision and representation of the population are a catalyst for transdisciplinary research and enable researchers to study a myriad of vital outcomes.

Data Portal

The Data Core at the Stanford Center for Population Health Sciences offers researchers 

  1. A central hub to efficiently access, link, visualize and analyze data from a wide variety of sources; and,
  2. A library of data assets to facilitate transdisciplinary population health science projects and collaboration.

Powered by Redivis, our Data Portal enables you to explore and learn about tools to manipulate millions of records. Once you have identified data of interest you will need to meet several requirements to ensure responsible use of sensitive data. You can read more about requirements in the access section of each dataset on the PHS Data Portal.

Data Requests

You can file a data request if you are interested in datasets we currently do not yet offer. Please use our Data Request Dashboard to submit.

Getting help

We offer several sources if support in case you need more than the getting started resources offer.

Redivis docs

Your first line of support provides you more detailed information about discovering data and data access.


Slack user channel

Your second line of support is more interactive and great for quick questions that you can't resolve from the documentation alone.


Office hours

Your third line of support is to schedule a meeting with us. We are happy to sit down with you for more complicated questions and issues that are best resolved in conversation.
