Successful web searching builds on solid research and library practices. Understanding how health statistics are generated and reported is fundamental to success.

Effective searches are built on an understanding of:
  • How statistical data are organized
  • Who collects them
  • How they are reported and
  • The information required for meaningful use
This course reviews those topics and provides examples of search strategies.

The course is presented in two parts:
  • The first part reviews how health statistics are compiled and assesses implications for locating and using them.
  • The second part presents examples that illustrate specific health statistics resources and discusses strategies for using them.
