* Does your research require health statistics or data, but you’re not sure where to get them?
* Do you want to know where to look for answers to questions such as:
– How many people in Sacramento County have been diagnosed with diabetes?
– How many Vietnamese-Americans (or other ethnic groups) live in various California counties and cities?
– Where can I find health status reports for California counties?
– How can I get raw data from a national survey that describes nutritional and behavioral factors associated with mortality?
– Can I quickly get a map of breast cancer rates for California counties?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then please come to the Sheldon Margen Public Health Library’s Health Statistics and Data Resources class!
