In an effort to improve data awareness and access, MPH has added a metadata catalog to the Indiana Data Hub. Reflective of the datasets available on the Hub and others within the MPH data environment that may be requested through our data request process, the catalog provides definitions to all fields in these datasets. It also provides a search function that allows users to identify fields based on providing organization, type of data, etc.
Metadata facilitates data resource discovery, definition and organization. It helps all data users to have a common definition to use when applying certain fields to their research. As datasets are added to the Hub, the catalog will be updated.
