CODES Custom Reporting System

The Reporting System is a simple way to create your own complex tabular reports from the Wisconsin CODES linked data. The system provides a variety of health outcome measures, output in tabular form, that can then be downloaded into Excel or other software of your choice for further manipulation and analysis. To run the system, all you need to do is:

You can download the data as a CSV file (comma separated values) or as an XML file for inputting into the table software of your choice. The option labeled "Export Data to Excel or CSV" exports the data as a CSV file.
