Regional Data

Prevention programs now depend greatly on data collection and analysis to target resources where they are most needed. In the 30 counties that comprise Health and Human Service Commission Region 2, data collection efforts are being greatly enhanced through new measures. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services (DSHS) supports the Prevention Resource Center in collaborating with community partners to assess regional needs for prevention planning.


As of September 2013, PRC Region 2 staff will be working with school districts, colleges and universities, local employers, other state health and human services agencies, and community groups to conduct surveys and other information gathering strategies.

Additionally, PRC’s across Texas are partnering with DSHS and the Public Policy Research Institute (PPRI) at Texas A&M University to promote the value and importance of school participation in the Texas School Survey of Drug and Alcohol Use.
