    Description

    Although most of the MHAS data is unrestricted and available through this website to any registered user, other MHAS datasets are restricted, and are available only under specific contractual conditions. The restricted datasets are created by the MHAS team to answer specific research questions. The team considers the feasibility of the linkage, the importance of the research questions that can be answered, and the willingness to have the linked files available to all users. The MHAS has created the following linked files:

    Product Description
    Community-level characteristics
    MHAS 2001 linkage with community services data (categorical variables)
    MHAS 2001 linkage with community services data (numerical variables)

    MHAS 2001 linkage with number of deaths by cause at municipality and community level: 1998-2011
    MHAS 2003 linkage with number of deaths by cause at municipality and community level: 1998-2011
    MHAS 2012 linkage with number of deaths by cause at municipality and community level: 1998-2011
    Violent and Non-Violent Death Counts, 1998-2011
