Participants in this workshop will learn about some 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.
