Two webinars were presented by staff from the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research in the past month, and recordings of the webinars are available online. The two webinars provide an overview of various ways to access and analyze data from the California Health Interview Survey. Researchers, students and anyone interested in learning how to use local-level data or analyze CHIS data in general to better understand populations encouraged to view both webinars. Links are provided below.

On Thursday, Nov. 29, presenter Matt Jans, PhD, CHIS Data Quality and Survey Methodology Manager provided an overview of special issues encountered when analyzing complex sample survey data and discussed how to access and analyze CHIS data in the SAS statistical software. Topics included the unique statistical features of the CHIS sample design and some examples of how taking the survey design into account effects health statistics.

    Dear AskCHIS managers,

    I just attended the Intro workshop and it was excellent. Thanks so much!

    Can you also post the CA Endowment training and how we can sign up for the 12/4/13 training (10-1), thanks.

    Also, I was wondering if more data could be actively solicited on seniors in L.A. County, esp.:
    1.) healthcare insurance by ethnicity (esp. for Asian and Latino) (please further break down Asian ethnicities)
    2.) Barriers to healthcare (ie.) sufficient services targeted for seniors where English is not their primary language (esp. for Asian and Latino); perception; mobility and transportation and unable to book services due to language.
