The Health Forecasting Project aims to help decision-makers choose policies and programs with the best health return on investment. Forecasting is common across a wide variety of disciplines, and projecting into the future often helps to inform the policymaking process, whether it’s the population trends produced by demographers or the fiscal projections of economists. But conspicuously absent from many discussions are projections on the population health impact based on various scenarios, and major health and health care policy decisions are often based on limited data and insights into the health benefits of proposed policies and interventions.
The Win-Win project is a long-term initiative of the Center for Health Advancement at the Fielding School of Public Health. It provides good science that drives change by showing the health impact to populations and value to governments of policies, systems, and programmatic innovations. The project provides a standardized, unbiased economic analysis of interventions to help public health officials make informed policy decisions and engage in collaboration with other sectors.
The California Health Interview Survey (CHIS) is the nation’s largest population-based state health survey, and the first in California to interview people from every county. CHIS is conducted on a continuous basis, allowing it to provide a detailed picture of the health and health care needs of California’s large and diverse population. A full data cycle takes two years to complete, with over 50,000 Californians surveyed. CHIS interviews Californians in several languages: English, Spanish, Cantonese, Mandarin, Korean, Vietnamese and Tagalog.
