Activity: Skin Care Inputs and Outcomes

1. In this list of good and bad cities for your skin, some cities are included based on inputs (physical activity, access to health care) and some are based on outcomes (actual incidence of disease). Categorize all the criteria as either an input or an outcome.

2. Which of the measures are based on continuous variables, and which are based on discrete variables?

3. What do you think about the 1-10 ranking? Does it make sense? Why or why not?

4. If time permits, look up all-city data on one of the outcome measures. Do any of the “good” skin cities have bad outcomes? Do any of the “bad” skin cities have good outcomes?
