Biomedical Research Resources: HEALTH STATISTICS

Home for CCNY students interested in conducting medical research who are not part of CUNY School of Medicine

HEALTH STATISTICS

The sites under this heading fall into two categories: those which provide statistical data, and those which deal with the use of such data. Statistical information is used in nearly every area of study, so the sites cover an extremely broad range. You may find statistical information on your specific topic in  books and articles.

When searching PubMed for statistical information : 

For diseases: limit MeSH heading to the subheading: /epidemiology (e.g., Obesity/epidemiology)

For articles with mortality data, limit to the subheading: /mortality (e.g., Myocardial Infarction/mortality)

For non-disease terms, limit to the subheading: /statistics & numerical data (e.g., Medical Errors/statistics & numerical data)
