This book helps students to develop the fundamental skill of public health practitioners: to measure health (and wellbeing) and ill-health, alongside the social determinants of health. Three main areas are covered: understanding and application of epidemiological concepts; interpretation of data and presentation of information; understanding of the sources of information and the role of the various agencies who contribute. Case studies help identify how epidemiology and social science skills can be applied to real issues, and the book will equip public health practitioners to use data confidently in their day-to-day practice.
