Because IDHS Regions are aggregations of a large number of counties, searching in IECAM by IDHS Regions is a good way to get data on large regional areas of the state (i.e., north, north central, south central, south), or to get data for reports that are directly tied to IDHS activities. The exception is Cook County, which is one region (Region 1) divided into north, central, and south. IECAM reports data for Region 1 as a whole, rather than divided into north and south.

All data reported in IECAM that are available by county are also available by IDHS region. Data that are not available by county are not available by IDHS region.
