Welcome to the Health Statistics & Data Guide!
Finding relevant health statistics & data is a challenging task. To help you in this undertaking, we have compiled some print and online resources that will be useful for finding data on a wide variety of health topics.
Health statistics & data include vital statistics, mortality, disease incidence and distribution, and data on health care professionals, health care utilization, costs, and services. The field of epidemiology makes use of health statistics to study the occurrence, patterns and causes of diseases in a population.

Not all data sources are created equal. This guide recommends some high-quality data sources, but you'll also find other statistics and data on websites when you search Google. It is important to be able to critically evaluate the quality of the information you find. For an interactive tutorial on assessing the quality of health information found on the Web, view the tutorial Evaluating Internet Health Information from the National Library of Medicine.
