Mining the Census for Health Reporting

Ronald Campbell, of The Orange County Register, offers a number of story ideas and tips on reporting them.

Among the thousands of topics that the Census covers, there are a few obvious gems for healthcare reporters and many that will require deeper digging. The obvious targets: health insurance and disabilities. Not only can you explore these topics geographically, but you can get insanely detailed information about each of them. How about the number of visually impaired people in your local workforce – employed vs. unemployed? Or look at part-timers and see how many buy health insurance on their own, through their employers or not at all.
