Researchers, students and anyone interested in learning how to use local-level data to better understand populations are invited to participate in a free webinar on December 13, 2012 from 10-11am, (PST). Presented by Hongjian Yu, PhD and Yueyan Wang, PhD, Statistical Support for the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, this online workshop will provide an overview of state-of-the art methods for estimating important health indicators for small geographic areas using data from the California Health Interview Survey, CHIS. Only a general understanding of population-based data analysis is required.
By the end of this training, participants will:
- Receive an overview of various statistical techniques for generating local-level estimates and variances; and
- Learn how to compare the strengths and challenges of each technique to determine which method should be employed to meet specific data needs
