This is a statistical analysis of the activities of public health activities in Ohio based on the work of 56 out of a total of 180 commissioners. It led to the establishment of a course for public health officers with a curriculum of work now being done by the majority of health commissioners in Ohio. The activities are collected into headings such as laboratory and engineering activities, vital statistics, control of disease, administrative activities and educational functions.
