Finding and Using Health Statistics

Statistics? Oh no! If you just said that – you are one of a large number of medicos 🙂 There is a joke that most medicos became medicos in order to run away from Maths and then end up being forced to learn Statistics!

Setting jokes aside, guess what we found?

This is a simple tutorial on the US National Library of Medicine’s website. While it is (obviously) related to the US resources and more, we could still learn a lot from here and then find our own data sources. Maybe we could push for creating some!

So learn about Correlates, Sampling, Confidence intervals and more…Go through the exercises and quizzes. And if you forget something – there is a rich glossary too!

Happy learning!
