Statement of Purpose and Institute Overview: The purpose of this Institute is to build the capacity of nonprofit, community based and public health agencies and providers to use AskCHIS, a free Internet-based tool that runs queries using California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) data. Conducted every other year since 2001, CHIS is an omnibus state health telephone survey that collects information on a variety of health topics for California’s diverse population, focusing on access to health care, health insurance coverage, health behaviors, chronic health problems, cancer screening, mental health, and other key health issues. AskCHIS can be used to obtain, analyze and apply health and social data to inform program planning, best practices, grant proposals, mobilizing stakeholders and advocacy work.
Session Objectives: 1) Participants will define a data query and population (e.g. age, race/ethnicity, gender, geographic region) that can be accurately addressed using AskCHIS. 2) Participants will produce and interpret a one-way table using AskCHIS BASIC to address a data query. 3) Participants will produce and interpret a two-way table using AskCHIS PRO to address a data query.
