This research guide covers a broad range of health communication and information research resources and supports the Master of Health Communication and Information (MHCI) and other programs offered through the School of Communication and Information.


Locating health-related data and statistics can be challenging! This guide will help you locate health-related data.

Here are a couple things to keep in mind when trying to locate data on a health-related topic:

  • Think in terms of major stakeholders. Who is likely to be responsible for keeping track of data on a particular health-related topic?
  • It takes time to compile data on a topic. The past few years may have to suffice as "recent" data.
