What is OPHID?

The Ontario Population Health Index of Databases (OPHID) is an index of a wide variety of quantitative information sources for and about Ontario that reflect both the state of the health of its populations and possible explanatory variables.

It is not a data-access platform; the objective of OPHID is to improve population health research by informing researchers about the data sources that are out there, the types of data that are in them, and how to contact data providers regarding potential data access.

OPHID is freely available to researchers, students, practitioners and decision-makers from across Ontario from the population health sector as well as other related disciplinary fields (note: data access is at the discretion of data providers and is not within OPHID’s control.)
