NCHS - 2012 National Conference on Health Statistics - Homepage
Welcome to the
2012 National Conference on Health Statistics
Our biennial conference focuses on the critical impact of public health data on the health and well-being of the U.S. population. The 2012 Conference will emphasize current NCHS data activities and their relationship to today’s key health issues. Through presentations, interactive workshops, and other innovative approaches, the Conference aims to further attendees’ understanding of the importance and relevance of public health data.
Included in the 2012 Conference is a 1-day Learning Institute on August 6, where participants will receive hands-on training in accessing and analyzing NCHS survey data and will explore learning modules on the use of selected data access tools. The Learning Institute will be followed by a 2-day Main Conference on August 7–8.Participants will have an opportunity to attend Scientific Sessions and hear from leading researchers in the fields of health, health data, and statistics.
This year’s expanded Exhibitor Showcase and Poster Sessions offer another venue for insight into NCHS survey operations and data analysis. The Poster Sessions will present original research on health, health data, and statistics, and will provide a forum for informal discussions. This year’s Poster Sessions will feature a special focus on student research.
Registration opens in early April. Hope to see you in Washington, DC, August 6–8!
