This quarter’s presentation, Bayesian Inference in Programme Evaluation, will be presented by Dr. Elliot Meador, SRUC.

For those, like me, that may not be familiar with this topic, here is a quick description:  Bayesian statistics is a particular approach to applying probability to statistical problems. It provides us with mathematical tools to update our beliefs about random events in light of seeing new data or evidence about those events.  In particular Bayesian inference interprets probability as a measure of believability or confidence that an individual may possess about the occurrence of a particular event.

What works to improve rural health?

This year the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps found that rural areas are lagging behind urban places. While rates of premature death are improving in urban areas, they are getting worse for rural populations. So what can rural areas do to reverse this trend? Our new report outlines evidence-informed and innovative strategies to improve health for rural populations. With more than 65 policy, systems, and environmental changes that can be made in rural areas, “What Works? Strategies to Improve Rural Health” can help rural communities take action to address their local challenges. The report comes from our researchers at County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, and is now available on our website.
