Why health statistics?
Statistics can inspire an audience to care about a topic. But they do more than raise awareness. Statistics allow us to track our progress towards being a healthier nation. They can advise healthcare providers in patient care, research areas, and possible clinical studies.
Much of our health statistics come from government agencies; government agencies are responsible for gathering information on population, demographics, disease outbreaks, and more. Because the information is gathered by governement agencies, it is open to the public, if you only know where to look.
