Public Health Profiles are yearly reports put out by the State of Wisconsin and include selected data on population characteristics, natality, mortality, morbidity, local health departments, long-term care and hospitalizations. The data were selected to profile important aspects of public health for the state as a whole, each of the 72 counties, the five Division of Public Health regions, and the seven perinatal regions.
