Finding and Using Health Statistics: A Self-Study Course
Prepared by Dan Melnick Research Inc. for the National Library of Medicine. Although this self-study course is designed for librarians, this course may be of value to all users of health statistics. Presents sources of statistics based on four broad areas: health correlates, health conditions, health care and health consequences. Also demonstrates how to identify and find important results; assess the benefits and limitations of these results; and progress from summaries to detailed original reports. Instruction in this self-study class is reinforced by a series of 15 exercises.
