RAND California: Statistical Information for the Golden State


California is the most populous state in America and one of the most diverse societies on the globe. For the health policy researcher, this means that California generates a trove of statistics that can be plumbed in order to develop and answer research questions.

Produced by the influential RAND Corporation, RAND California provides access to almost 150 statistical databases. These databases are updated at varying intervals and contain information from employment data to “quality of life” measures to government expenditures at the local, state, and federal level in California. Anyone in need of statistical information about the Golden State should visit RAND California before going anywhere else.
