Finding & Using Health Data

To help identify health statistics and data sources ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Is there a government agency or organization that would collect the data you are looking for?
  2. Do you need current or historical data?
  3. What type of data do you need (demographic, vital statistics, health, etc.)?
  4. What level of data do you need (provincial/state, country, continent, etc.)?
