Have you ever needed to find health statistics or wanted to try your hand in collecting data? The Finding Health Statistics D-Lab workshop, lead by Public Health Librarian Michael Sholinbeck, will cover issues surrounding the collection of health statistics, and will point out reliable sources for health statistics and data. Sholinbeck will also be introducing tools for creating custom tables of vital (birth, death, etc.), disease, and health behavior statistics. The focus will be on US statistics, but sources for international statistics will be covered as well. Students will have a chance to explore some of these valuable tools in class, so be sure to bring a laptop.
