Health Center Program Data - Public Use Data Request

The Health Resources and Services Administration/Bureau of Primary Health Care (HRSA/BPHC) is pleased to make available to the public as a free resource in an electronic format the Uniform Data Systems (UDS) for the Health Center Program. This action is being taken pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552(a)(2)(D)) (FOIA).

Data accuracy

Users should note that data from the UDS are from annual reports submitted by grantee health centers and look-alikes, and do not represent scientific research conducted by the federal government. In addition, some data fields, including those not used for agency functions may contain incorrect or incomplete data.

Unavailable Data

The data in the blank rows of Tables 5, 8A, and 9D is being withheld under Exemption 4 of the FOIA, 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(4). This exemption protects against the release of proprietary confidential business and financial information, which, if disclosed, could provide potential competitors with an unfair advantage, including in future grant competitions. A predisclosure notification process pursuant to 45 C.F.R. 5.42(a) is conducted annually with the grantee health centers and look-alikes asking if they consent to the release of their data in Tables 5, 8A, and 9D. The rows in these tables that contain data are from those responders that provided such consent.

Data integrity

Any alteration of the original data, including conversion to other media or other data formats, and any manipulation or reprocessing of the original data, is the sole responsibility of the user. HRSA is not able to verify the accuracy of this data to the extent that it has been altered in any manner. HRSA/BPHC does not assist users with converting the data to another format.
