Global Health Data Exchange - Discover the World's Health Data

Using Advanced Search

In the new version of the GHDx, Advanced Search has replaced the Browse feature. The two function similiarly but the new feature has more options.

In the Advanced Search, you can find datasets by:

  • Precise geographic coverage
  • Time period, including ranges
  • Specific keywords
  • Series or system name

Or a combination of the above.  Advanced Search is perfect for addressing specific questions such as:

  • What data cover a specific topic over a specific time-frame?
  • What data are from a specific country?

The difference between regular search and Advanced Search is that advanced search allows you to limit your query to specific content in a specific field instead of, for example, the word "malaria" in any field.
