At the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, we are committed to putting data into the hands of people who need it. CHIS, which is the nation's largest state health survey, hosted a data user training webinar in December 2020 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, presented by Peggy Toy, Health DATA Program director, and Jacob Rosalez, CHIS data dissemination manager, features:
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 this year).
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.
