"The determinants of health under biology and genetics include data that are individual/family focused or population focused. The public health nurse gathers the information on the individual and family as a client using whatever health assessment tool he or she uses in the particular academic or clinical setting. Pertaining to the population aggregate, data such as age, race, and gender would be considered important to gather."
