This guide was created to aid University of Toledo faculty, staff, and students who need statistical health information. Included resources encompass finding aids, databases, and tools.
Health statistics sources include international organizations, nongovernmental agencies, US and Ohio government agencies, and northwest Ohio agencies and organizations.
General statistics are also included if they contain health related information as demographics.

This guide is not meant to be all inclusive.
The items were selected to fit the research and informational needs of as many University of Toledo affiliates as possible.
The beta version of TOXMAP is in active development. It has an improved map appearance and interactive capabilities as well as improved U.S. Census layers, availability by Census tract, and additional and updated datasets.
ToxMap helps users visually explore data primarily from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) and Superfund Program.
Both beta and classic versions includes overlay options - mortality, race, population, age, and income
