About the Data
Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
Number of Tribal public health agencies that are nationally accredited
To be accredited, public health agencies must submit documentation to demonstrate conformity with approximately 100 consensus Standards and Measures, which are based on the 10 Essential Public Health Services, to the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). That documentation is reviewed by a team of peers who also conduct a site visit. That team of peer site visitors develops a report describing the public health agency’s conformity with the Standards and Measures. PHAB’s Accreditation Committee reviews the report and makes a determination about accreditation status.
