Keep in Mind
  • Information about all HCUP databases is found on the HCUP-US Databases page. Not all States make their data available through the HCUP Central Distributor, and not all data elements are available from every State. Details are provided on the Availability of HCUP Databases page.

  • The online Database Catalog provides information on the year-by-year pricing and availability of HCUP databases and applicable supplemental files.

  • Participating Data Organizations set the price of their data. Some Data Organizations offer reduced pricing for AHRQ grantees, students, and/or non-profit organizations.

  • If you have State HCUP data from a previous project and wish to use the data for a purpose other than that originally approved, you must submit a "Data Re-use Request" (PDF file, 47 KB) to the HCUP Central Distributor for review and approval by AHRQ before work may begin on the new project.

Getting Ready to Order:
  • Review the information on this page, and visit the HCUP-US Databases page for more information on the Nationwide and State Databases and explore the Tools & Software page to understand the supplemental files that may be provided with the databases.

  • Complete the HCUP Data Use Agreement (DUA) training course. This training is required of all purchasers and all individuals with access to HCUP data, and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.

    Make note of your certification code and completion date as this information will be required to complete your account profile and place an order through the online HCUP Central Distributor.

  • If you are unable to use the ordering Web site, you may purchase HCUP databases and supplemental files by completing a hard copy application.
