North Carolina Health Statistics Pocket Guide 1995 & 1997

North Carolina Pocket Guide If you are familiar with our North Carolina Health Statistics Pocket Guide, this is an online version of that publication. Printed biennially as a pocket-size foldout, its contents are used by students, legislators, and others for research, decision making, and reference when they want health information about North Carolina and its counties. Due to limited availability of the printed version and its popularity, we have presented it here.
