The data is here! The Philadelphia Health Management Corporation (PHMC) has released the results of its 13th biennial Southeastern Pennsylvania Household Health Survey. In addition to tracking core health indicators such as insurance status and cigarette smoking over time, this year’s survey addresses 14 new topics including use of walk-in retail clinics and sedentary lifestyle behaviors such as screen time. Read highlights in PHMC’s Data Findings series and coverage in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
In addition to producing the survey, PHMC offers free trainings open to Jefferson staff. Stay tuned for details on upcoming sessions on logic models/outcome measurements, survey design, and tips for presenting and discussing statistics.
