NM-IBIS Indicator Reports Introduction

Welcome to the NM-IBIS Indicator Reports. A health indicator is a numeric measure that depicts the health or health system status on a core public health construct. Indicator reports provide online numeric data for a health indicator as well as public health context (such as why it is important and what is being done to improve it). NM-IBIS indicator authors and editors in programs throughout the Department of Health prepare these indicator reports.

For more detailed information about Indicator Reports see the Indicator Report Contents and Usage page.
