Case Example

We created a Case Example as an opportunity for you to experiment with our methodology. This example draws on all cause mortality data from Suffolk County, Massachusetts, between 1989 and 1991. You’ll have a chance to analyze these data by census tract poverty to see the socioeconomic gradient in mortality in this county. We’ve divided the case example into clearly defined tasks to highlight the process of moving from raw data to summary measures of the socioeconomic disparity.

In order to complete the exercise, you will also need these raw data files and SAS program.
