Health data (online resources)

Health Data Tools and Statistics

This site provides many links. Among them, I find the County Health Calculator interesting. It used AR (Attributable Risk/Rate) to illustrate the potential effects of eliminating an exposure. Similarly, we can also use PAR (Population Attributable Risk/Rate) or PAF (Population Attributable Fraction) to identify risk factors that could have been prevented.
