Epi Info™

Epi Info™ is a public domain suite of software tools designed for the global community of public health practitioners and researchers. It provides for easy data entry form and database construction, a customized data entry experience, and data analyses with epidemiologic statistics, maps, and graphs for public health professionals who may lack an information technology background. Epi Info™ is used for outbreak investigations; for developing small to mid-sized disease surveillance systems; as analysis, visualization, and reporting (AVR) components of larger systems; and in the continuing education in the science of epidemiology and public health analytic methods at schools of public health around the world. The major components of Epi Info include: 

  • MakeView - a program for creating questionnaires, automatically creating the database, and customizing the data entry process
  • Enter - a program for using the questionnaires created in MakeView to perform the data entry
  • Analysis - a program for producing statistical analyses of data and diplaying the results as lists, tables, charts, or graphs
  • Epi Map - a program for creating GIS maps overlayed with survey data
  • Epi Report - a program for combining Analysis output into professional printer-ready format or saved as HTML files for easy web publishing.
