Looking for local California health data for your county or region? The California Health Interview Survey (CHIS), the nation’s largest state health survey, is one of the leading critical sources of data on Californians. You can get results from the survey for your county and region through AskCHIS the free, easy online tool to search for data from the California Health Interview Survey.
To help you use AskCHIS to get the data you need, the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research is offering free AskCHIS training workshops through its Health DATA Program to enable broad use of CHIS data by policy advocates, program planners, service providers and the media in need of comprehensive data on the health of Californians. The workshops are supported through grants from The California Endowment and Kaiser Permanente.
Two AskCHIS Workshops are available online in August. Introduction to AskCHIS Online Workshop, August 20, is for those new to AskCHIS to learn key functions to get population estimates on any CHIS health topic and how to export results in charts and graphs. Register for the August 20 workshop.
The Advanced AskCHIS Online Workshop, August 27, for experienced AskCHIS and health data users, features how to use advanced functions to produce results using multiple variables, comparing data across populations and geographic areas, and using Excel with AskCHIS for complex analysis. Register for the August 27 workshop.
