Research Information Network on Women and Girls in Illinois

Health and Aging

Welcome to the Health and Aging section of the Research Information Network [RIN]. In this section you can find reports, statistics, organizations, and government agencies that deal with women's health and aging.

This section is organized into three main sections: (1) Data and Reports, (2)Policy, and (3) Organizations. Within each of these three sections, information is further sorted by whether it addresses issues in Illinois, the US, or internationally. Finally, in the large Data and Report section, we use 8 categories to sift through the issues related to women's health.

Wherever possible, we try to note if there is information that is:

There are also some sites here that contain excellent search engines. If you plan to use these, please refer to that site's "How to Search" section.

NOTE: Sites like the Center for Disease Control (CDC) are so large that here on the RIN, we have picked a select few reports, sites, and programs to highlight. Please do not think that we have given you an exhaustive list for these major sites. To get the most out of these sites, you will need to do some digging and searching on your own. They usually do have their own internal search engine.

 

If you still have questions, please refer to the "How to Use the RIN" page.

Happy researching!
