Join UCLA Center for Health Policy Research (CHPR) and California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) for a special data user training webinar for legislators, policymakers, and media 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 webinar will feature:

  • AskCHIS™: an online health query system that allows you to search for health statistics on your county, region, and state.
  • AskCHIS Neighborhood Edition™: a GIS search tool for health indicators by ZIP code, city, county, legislative districts, and census tracts. New data and four vulnerability indices at the census tract level released in 2021, including a Preexisting Health Vulnerability Index that captures risk of COVID-19 infection and death due to preexisting health conditions.
  • COVID-19 data dashboards: tools to track COVID-19 and various risk factors across California counties, as well as preliminary monthly estimates from new COVID-19 questions in CHIS 2020, including COVID-19 treatment, personal and financial impacts of the pandemic, and much more.
  • Health Profiles: find quick and easy health statistics on adults and children for your county, region, legislative district, and more.

This training is presented by Peggy Toy, director of the Health DATA Program, and Jacob Rosalez, California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) data dissemination manager.
