Health Statistics & Data

Here are a few sources of health statistics to get you started. Before searching, you should review the National Library of Medicine's Finding and Using Health Statistics tutorial, especially the section on Health Data Sources

Tips for locating health statistics:

  • Clearly define geography before searching (example: United States; North America; whole world). Many health statistic sources only have information on a particular geographic area. 
  • Very recent health statistics aren't always available but try to locate the most recent statistics. 
  • Not every imaginable health statistic is available online! 
  • When reading scholarly articles, health statistics may be mentioned in the text. Use the References section to identify the sources of these statistics.
