With the Safety Net Profile Tool, you have easy access to all the data included in the Safety Net Monitoring Initiative. More than 120 measures are available for 30 States and the District of Columbia, including 355 counties and 172 cities in 90 metropolitan areas, as well as all 1,818 counties (both metropolitan and non-metropolitan) in those States. The Profile Tool will guide you step-by-step to obtain the statistics you need, and can be used to generate reports that compare multiple measures for one or more geographic areas.

The data in the Profile Tool come from Monitoring the Health Care Safety Net: Book 1. Data for Metropolitan Areas and Book 2. Data for States and Counties. In addition to this Profile Tool, these data are available in a variety of electronic formats.
