Page 1 of 6
We next turn to a consideration of how data are collected and compiled.

We consider different data collection procedures—their strengths and limits.

The procedures introduced here include:
  • Clinical observation and reporting
  • Health Surveys
  • Administrative Records
  • Case Reporting
  • Vital Records

We also look at how different requirements for periodicity and content shape the reports that are issued.
