The purpose of Public Health Activities and Services Tracking (PHAST), in particular the Budget Cuts and Health Outcomes project, is to address knowledge gaps in public health practice, research, and policymaking to examine the following research questions: (1) Is variation in local health department (LHD) services and expenditures related to local needs?; and (2) What are the effects of the recession-induced changes in LHD resources and services on population health? The two data files in this collection were produced as part of this study. The first file covers annual expenditures by service type for Florida LHDs during 2000-2013, the second annual revenues and expenditures by service type for Washington LHDs during 1998-2011. Both files contain indicator variables that flag service types classified as women, infants, and children (WIC) service; family planning; or maternal, infant, child, and adolescent (MICA) service.
