Date: February 6, 2019
Time: 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. Central
On Wednesday, February 6th at 1:00 PM Central, SHADAC hosted a webinar introducing two new measures of health outcomes and social determinants of health on SHADAC’s State Health Compare—Unhealthy Days and Unaffordable Rents. This presentation by SHADAC researchers Brett Fried and Robert Hest examined these new measures and highlight how the estimates can be used to explore disparities between states and among sub-populations.
The webinar also provided a virtual tour of some of the more than 40 state-level measures currently available on State Health Compare, highlighting recently updated data in particular. Mr. Fried and Mr. Hest demonstrated how users can employ State Health Compare to easily create compelling maps, charts, and graphs, as well as download the raw estimates to perform deeper analyses and statistical testing.
SHADAC researchers also answered questions from attendees after the presentation.
