Description

Participants in this workshop will learn about some of the issues surrounding the collection of health statistics, and will also learn about authoritative sources of health statistics and data. We will look at tools that let you create custom tables of vital statistics (birth, death, etc.), disease statistics, health behavior statistics, and more.

The focus will be on U.S. statistics, but sources of non-U.S. statistics will be covered as well. Whether you need a quick fact or a data set to analyze, this workshop will lead you to relevant data sources. No prior knowledge is required for this workshop. Please attend if you have any interest in health statistics and data sources. Have a laptop with you to follow along.

Prerequisites: None.

Workshop Materials: PDF slides (also PPTX slides)
