Having difficulty finding the health statistics or data that you need?

Do you want to know where to look for the answers for the following questions?
* How many people in Alameda County have been immunized with the flu shot?
* How many Hispanics in Contra Costa County for 2012?
* How do 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?

Do you want to be able to download and save data?

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!

Some of the topics that will be covered:

1. Vital Statistics
2. Incidence and Prevalence Statistics
3. National Surveys
