How to request data

Request data using Hennepin County's online data request portal.

If you are requesting public data, the county cannot require you to identify yourself or ask you to explain why you are requesting the data.

You can submit your request anonymously in the online portal.

For all requests containing private data, submit a signed consent form.

If you do not have one, you may download the data request form.

Complete, sign, and submit it along with your data request.

Requests for summary data

Summary data leaves out private or confidential information about individuals.

To request summary data, you must make your request in writing using the data request form.

If there are charges associated with preparing summary data, state law allows us to pass those charges on to you.
