One of Oregon Tracking<http://www.healthoregon.org/epht>'s most unique data sets available on its data portal<http://epht.oregon.gov/Index.aspx> is the Body Mass Index (BMI) from state-issued identification cards dataset. To read more about it, check out the NEW-ly published article in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, in its special issue Eliminating Health Disparities to Achieve Health Equity<http://www.mdpi.com/1660-4601/12/6/6388>. The article demonstrates that state-issued identification cards are a promising data source for BMI surveillance and may offer new insight into the association between weight status and economic and environmental factors.

Have you used the BMI dataset? Tell us all about it at epht.ohd at state.or.us<mailto:epht.ohd at state.or.us> or share it on our Facebook page<http://www.facebook.com/OregonEPHT?ref=hl>.
