Epidemiologic intelligence, based on valid and reliable data, is essential to assess, measure, and describe the health and wellbeing of different populations, as well as their health risks, health needs, and health outcomes. Critical analysis of health information for the purpose of describing population health, depends on thorough understanding of various routine and non-routine data sources, information systems, and tools.
