[ Posted on November 18th, 2013 by Porsche Johnson | No Comments » ]

askCHIS_button The ACA is upon us!  The Affordable Care Act is effective January 1, 2014.  Become more informed about the current health insurance and healthcare access trends in your community by joining staff from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research’s Health DATA Program for our December 4 Advanced AskCHIS workshop.  During this free in-person workshop our staff will provide an overview of functions of AskCHIS, the online web tool for the California Health Interview Survey.

This training is designed for participants who have already taken an introductory training on using AskCHIS or are advanced data users that have used the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) data before.  Participants will have the opportunity to navigate through AskCHIS in real time with and with the assistance of a Health DATA instructor, find, analyze, and export the data.  Additionally participants will learn how to work with multiple CHIS variables, generate bivariate tables and export data tables and graphs.  Those who are looking for exposure to online data systems and data for Californian households are especially encouraged to register.

The December 4 workshop is made possible through support from The California Endowment and the California Pan Ethnic Health Network and Insure the Uninsured Project.
