Health Statistics

Resources on finding and utilizing health statistics.!
Health Statistics are available in a number of resources including: published sources, unpublished or "grey" literature, and various government and private sources on the internet.  However, these statistics and data are not as easily retrieved as more conventional scholarly literature that is organized in bibliographic databases. It is important to be aware of the fact that the statistics or data you need for your assignment or research may be hiding in the deep structure of a report or table. This can mean that a simple search may fail to retrieve all of the relevant material you require.
