Law Atlas-The Policy Surveillance Portal

Public Health Law Research & PHLR  •  December 13, 2013

Law Atlas-The Policy Surveillance Portal provides access to a variety of datasets that can be useful when conducting public health law research. Each dataset is accompanied by a protocol and a codebook. The protocols describe the method for creating the datasets allowing both replication and updating. The codebooks describe the variables in a dataset.

All of the "PHLR-created" datasets were created following the methods set out in the PHLR Methods Monograph Measuring Statutory Law and Regulations for Empirical Research. You can also watch a web video that explains the process.
