Data Center


The ASPPH Data Center collects data on admissions, students, graduate employment, faculty, and operating budgets including federal grants and contracts. Using multiple data sources, the Data Center offers many resources for you to learn more about trends in education for public health, including infographics and publications and reports.

Graduate Employment

Employment data of recent graduates of CEPH-accredited schools and programs of public health are important for understanding the pipeline for the public health workforce. The 2014 ASPPH Graduate Employment Project pilot was the first step towards building a cohesive effort on reporting annual graduate employment data among CEPH-accredited schools and programs of public health. The pilot project includes 4,867 recent graduates from 57 ASPPH members. With the number of degrees awarded in public health increasing over the past two decades, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels, this report will inform both academia and the practice community on where graduates of schools and programs of public health find employment.

The Undergraduate Major

ASPPH and the de Beaumont Foundation published a report in 2014 that examines the growth trends in undergraduate public health education over the past two decades. Using data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the results show that public health is now one of the fastest growing undergraduate majors in the United States. The article, “Characterizing the growth of the undergraduate public health major, 1992-2012” can be downloaded here or read online at Public Health Reports.
