DSHS Regions defines three geographic areas within the State of Washington, USA for the purposes of administering services to customers and coordinating with partners and stakeholders. Attribute fields include the Region number, a Hub field naming the primary and secondary population centers within the region, and a Counties field naming the counties within the region. These boundaries were derived by DSHS staff based on the US Census Bureau's Census 2010 Washington County boundaries.Lifecycle status: ProductionPurpose: enable open access to DSHS dataDSHS Data Security: Category 1 - PublicLast Update: 2/7/2011Update Cycle: as neededData Sources: DSHSFGDC Metadata: you a DSHS employee?  Get more - sign up for your GIS Pass!Important: DSHS reserves the right to alter, suspend, re-host, or retire this service at any time and without notice. This is a map service that you can use in custom web applications and software products. Your use of this map service in these types of tools forms a dependency on the service definition (available fields, layers, etc.). If you form any dependency on this service, be aware of this significant risk to your purposes. You might consider mitigating your risk by extracting the source data and using it to host your own service in an environment under your control. Typically, DSHS Enterprise GIS staff will provide notification of changes via the "Comments" RSS capability in ArcGIS Online. You may subscribe to the RSS feed that publishes comments to monitor any planned and notified changes.
