Health Statistics


Welcome to the UTHSC Health Sciences Library's Health Statistics Resource Guide.

It's challenging to find health statistics because they are scattered in the published literature and websites. In addition, this information was not published and presented in a consistent pattern which makes it even harder to locate. This resource guide puts together some basic health statistics from the federal, state, and local government levels.
