For most requests, we estimate Tribal regions and Tribal data using data for the counties in the Tribe’s Indian Health Services (IHS) Purchased/Referred Care Delivery Area (PRCDA). The PRCDA region is generally the best approximation available, because we do not have access to Tribal-specific data or Tribal enrollment data (unless provided to us by the Tribe).

NOTE: we only provide data and technical assistance to Tribes and Tribal partners. If you are not affiliated with a Tribe or Tribal organization, please reach out to your state’s health department for data assistance.

Requests that involve data analysis and interpretation can take 1-3 months to complete, depending on the volume of requests. We appreciate your patience.

For requests that involve data analysis and interpretation, the datasets below are available. The years available vary for the 3 states of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington State. If you are looking for data that is not listed below (ie. IHS Epidemiology Data Mart, etc.), please contact us at
