Don’t Panic: You CAN find health statistics
Finding health statistics can be daunting and time consuming. This course is designed to help guide the search for statistical information by providing participants with systematic approaches and effective methods. Participants will be introduced to a variety of statistics resources and their appropriate use. The session will consist of lecture, practical exercises, and hands-on searching. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own laptops but this is not an absolute requirement for participation (just preferred).
By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
- Explain the difference between data and statistics and have a basic knowledge of how both are generated
- Understand the major issues related to statistics that can influence the search process
- Use an organized and systematic approach to search for and answer health statistics questions
- Have experiences and insights and in selecting and using a variety of sources to find health statistics, including portals, databases of health statistics, and regional, national and international health statistics sources
