Weight: 10% of course grade
While public health surveillance has traditionally focused on infectious diseases, public health officials are now targeting environmental issues, occupational matters, injuries, chronic diseases, birth defects, risky health behaviors, and genetics. It is for this reason that statistical data has become vital for public health officials, and why for public health officials, it is important to be able to use and interpret data.
For the Unit IV Case Study, research the sources of data in your community, and address the following points.
Briefly describe your local sources of data used by public health officials.
Discuss one strength and limitation of collecting data in your community.
Describe an intervention or program to address a public health issue in your community. Provide an example of how data was interpreted to the local community in the intervention or program. Please provide a link to the intervention or program.
Your case study must be a minimum of two pages in length, excluding the title and reference pages. To support your ideas, use a minimum of three outside sources; one may be the textbook. Additionally, use a source that focuses on your community, such as a newspaper or journal article.
Remember that all written assignments must be formatted using APA style, including in-text citations and references.
