Health Forecasting Tool

Description:

The Health Forecasting Tool is a simulation model and web-based interface that allows anyone to access information gauging the future health impacts of changes in programs and policies on populations. Users can customize the information by specifying geographic boundaries and distributions of race, ethnicity, age, and gender. Results are displayed in graphic charts and reports.

This collaborative project has produced issue briefs on the health of Californians and has expanded its work to include Arkansas and Wisconsin.
