Economics Juniors (2020) Health Data (David Silver)

Economics Juniors Session for David Silver

Health Economics Literature

Looking to see if Princeton subscribes to a journal or owns a book?

  • Search by title (ignoring initial articles) or journal title in the Catalog.
  • Note the location and the call number.
  • If the book is not available electronically and you are off campus, request a chapter to be digitized.

If Princeton does not own the book or is charged out:

  • Try Borrow Direct first. It is a very fast way of getting books if owned by Brown, the Center for Research Libraries, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, MIT, Stanford, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, or Yale.  
  • Interlibrary Services can borrow the book if not available in Borrow Direct libraries.  (Interlibrary Loan requests are available but may take longer to process, as some libraries are not lending from physical collections at this time. To pick up an item, you must have permission to be on campus.) While the Catalog indicates if Princeton owns a particular book, WorldCat will show what other libraries own.
Econlit 1886- Index with selected abstracts of international economic literature, produced by the American Economic Association. Includes coverage of major journals as well as articles in collective volumes (essays, proceedings, etc.), books, full text book reviews, dissertations, & working papers.

If Princeton does not subscribe to the journal you need:

The National Center for Health Statistics and the CDC make  various useful data write ups available which can be very useful for major topics and workarounds.

National Center for Health Statistics Data Briefs Statistical publications that provide information about current public health topics.
National Health Statistics Reports from the National Health Interview Survey Long detailed statistical publications that provide information about current public health topics.
Center for Disease Control and Prevention Publications Publications on a variety of health related topics (see publications by topic at the bottom of the CDC page)
