Where can I get a copy of the data I entered?

You can obtain a copy of your LPH Act Performance Measure data in three ways:

1. PPMRS Instructions: After using the LPH Act Performance Measures Instructions to gather data, you can use the document as a reference for the data you entered.

2. Print/Email After Data Entry: After you enter all of your data for an area within the LPH Act Performance Measures survey, and you hit "submit," you'll see a screen like the one below. You may print your responses for this performance measure area, or email your responses to yourself or a colleague.

3. Unique CHB Reports: Each year, OPI produces a report for each CHB, which higlights key LPH Act performance measures and includes statewide and local comparisons. These reports depend on data from the US Census Bureau, which is why they are not available straightaway after reporting. To obtain your CHB's report from last year, please contact your CHS administrator.
