Interested in learning how to access California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) data? Following the CHIS annual data release on October 4, 2023, the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research will host a data user training webinar 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 training will include:
- 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.
- CHIS 2023 Preliminary COVID-19 Estimates Dashboard: preliminary monthly estimates from COVID-19 questions added to the 2023 CHIS that include topics such as COVID-19 treatment, vaccination status, views on the vaccine, access to high-grade masks, personal and financial impacts of the pandemic, and more.
CHIS Data Dissemination Manager Jacob Rosalez will lead the training and walk through new data topics including hate incidents and additional COVID-19 questions, and demonstrate how to create and execute a query, read estimates and adjust for unstable estimates, understand confidence intervals, display map and chart data, and more.
