Health Assessment & Promotion
Welcome to the Office of Epidemiology & Statistics
What are epidemiology and statistics?
Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related states in specified populations, and the application of this study to control health problems.
Statistics is the science that deals with the collection, analysis, and interpretation of numerical facts or data.
Our mission is to provide epidemiological data support and data analysis to promote the health of DeKalb County residents. We also prevent, detect, control and investigate potentially infectious diseases and clusters of illness, excluding sexually transmitted diseases, HIV/AIDS, and tuberculosis, which other Board of Health units address.
On Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. call (404) 508-7851 (except holidays). After hours, call (404) 294-3700 to reach the on-call staff person.
