Indicators Idaho

The Internet has revolutionized how we find information. It has also raised expectations about how quickly we find that information. When the mayor wants to know why applications for building permits are down, her city planner needs the most recent population estimates, not numbers that are five years old. When an agency staff person is writing a proposal to fund a job-training program, he needs today’s unemployment rates, not those from last year.

If you don’t know where to look, finding the latest measures of population, unemployment and other statistics can be a daunting task. That’s why we developed the Indicators Idaho website – to provide a one-stop source of up-to-date information on states, counties, reservations, and tribes. Whether you work for a non-profit group, private firm or public agency, this site is for you.

Here, you'll find text summaries that highlight major trends in each indicator. You'll also find information displayed with graphs and maps. Users who want to analyze the indicators further can download data in Excel spreadsheets.

searchRxiv (pronounced “search archive”) has been established to support researchers to report, store and share their searches consistently and to enable them to review and re-use existing searches.

In any discipline a well-constructed search strategy is at the core of evidence-based research, enabling the comprehensive retrieval of eligible studies to be assessed for relevance, and ensuring that no existing research which may be relevant is missed.

Evidence-based study is a complex process typically involving teams of people to identify a question and formulate the protocols and searches which retrieve the evidence for the study. The resulting searches can be long and complex to handle. Consistency in how searches are reported, shared and stored for possible re-use by other users is key to ensure quality across these activities.

searchRxiv enables researchers to:

Post their searches, ensuring credit for all those involved
Obtain a digital object identifier (DOI) for their search, enabling it to be cited
Share their searches in a consistent format, allowing others to re-use
Comment on searches, allowing them to be improved
Link searches to published articles as relevant
Find it easier to follow best practice for structuring their search strategy
Easily find relevant searches in their subject area by searching across search strings as well as metadata describing those search strings


Data from All of Us Research Program available to researchers

From maternal mortality and nutrition, to sleep quality and COVID-19 respiratory illnesses, researchers across the U.S. are using data from the All of Us Research Program to drive new science on a range of health issues.

Now in its third year, the All of Us program is offering health data on hundreds of thousands of Americans to researchers for use in their work. Through the program’s online Research Hub — which hosts one of the largest, most diverse health datasets ever assembled — users can explore aggregate data on physical measurements, electronic health record information, wearables data and more. Scientists can register for the program’s Researcher Workbench for greater access to the data.
