Abstract: This study describes the data used to rank doctoral programs of health education based on the productivity of the faculty and the scholarly activity of doctoral students. No other data set of this type currently exists. Summative information is provided for each of the eight variables used to rank the 28 programs. The data show a wide degree of variation for each of the variables. Further analysis demonstrates that many faculty and programs are successful in obtaining external funding, publishing in refereed journals, and mentoring doctoral students. The data provide what would be needed for programs to improve their ranking.
