Health Statistics

Searching for Health Stats in Pubmed/Medline

MEDLINE/ PubMed:

  • Use the sub-heading Epidemiology for disease incidence, prevalence, etc.
  • Use the sub-heading Manpower for statistics on demand, supply, distribution, recruitment and use of personnel.
  • Use the sub-heading Mortality for mortality statistics (NOTE: This sub-heading is not available in EMBASE)
  • Use the sub-heading Statistics and Numerical Data to retrieve statistics on non-disease subjects.
  • Use the sub-heading Utilization to retrieve statistics on the use of equipment, programs, facilities, and services

If a sub-heading is not available for the topic you are searching, combine your search with statistic*.mp. Consider using other keyword terms such as incidence.mp.prevalence.mp.etc. as appropriate.
