FSPH's UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, is committed to putting data into the hands of people who need it. CHIS, which is the nation's largest state health survey, is hosting a data user training webinar on Thursday, December 9, to demonstrate how to use CHIS' free online data tools to get data on a wide range of health topics across many sociodemographic factors.
The 90-minute training webinar will feature:
Whether you're a student or faculty member conducting research on racial and ethnic disparities in health insurance coverage, writing a paper on the impact of the pandemic on mental health across various groups, or examining the differences in asthma rates across various Los Angeles communities, CHIS has comprehensive data on a variety of health topics and behaviors.
The data in the statewide survey have been used in a wide array of assignments — from quick write-ups on a targeted health topic to dissertations to peer-reviewed journal articles. CHIS data are used by local, state, and national public health agencies, advocates, media, legislators, policymakers, community organizations, foundations, and researchers, and have been used to make informed decisions and ground dozens of important health initiatives.
