Assignment: Analyzing Changing Data and Definitions
Data collection and dissemination may present challenges to those working in the field. However, knowledge derived from its analysis and interpretation will provide the basis for crucial events at the management level, such as planning and program evaluation, policy development and advancement, and the overall advancement of the public health agenda at every level.
For this Assignment, you will analyze how public health data and definitions have changed over the past decade, and you will evaluate the consistency and reliability of this data.
Review the article: Why Do Americans Have Shorter Life Expectancy and Worse Health Than Do People in Other High-Income Countries? By Mauricio Avendano and Ichiro Kawachi (2014) at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4112220/

Submit a 2- to 3-page analysis and your critique of the paper (not including title page, references, or tables). Include the following:
What data sources were used in this study?
Did the authors use secondary data or collected primary data?
What variables (dependent, independent, and covariates) were included?
What specific trend is being examined?
Did the authors find any specific trend? and if yes, what you can say about the future of this condition based on their trend analysis?
Define validity and reliability and explain if you have any concern about the reliability and validity of data used in this study.
Support your suggestions with additional scholarly resources. Use APA formatting for your paper and to cite your resources.
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
