  • But how much information does this give us? This doesn’t tell us about SES, which is a central component to Medi-Cal services. What we really want to know is if families that are in poverty are increasingly accessing Medi-Cal services. Geographic comparing tab/ compare to state.
  • Distribution across a population- gets at issues of equity and how policies are affecting specific populations differently.
  • Transpose topic, The ”medi-cal” pie vs. the “0-99%” poverty level pie. They are really 2-different research questions. Excel: Allows for more advanced analysis and charts/graphs. Compare multiple topics.
  • Have them do Worksheet 3
