Public Health - Seattle & King County

Data services

The Assessment, Policy Development and Evaluation Unit's primary work is assessment and evaluation of population-based data and interventions, integrating qualitative analysis, and policy development. We are a multidisciplinary group of epidemiologists, social research scientists, and policy specialists. We collaborate with community and other Public Health — Seattle & King County departments, using and developing state-of-the-art techniques for data collection and analysis. Our goal is to provide leadership and technical assistance for population-level health assessment, data-driven program planning, program evaluation, and policy.
