The Area Health Resource File (AHRF) is a national county-level health resources information darabase

A new release of the AHRF data file is issued annually; the 2012-2013 AHRF ASCII release and 2012-2013 AHRF Access are now available.

Note: AHRF Users, please be aware that on the 2008 and 2009-10 AHRF ASCII files, the 2001 population estimate (field F1198401) was incorrect. This affects only the ASCII file, not the AHRF Access for those two years. Values for this variable are correct for all other versions of the AHRF, including the current.
