Join us for CTS Seminar this Friday at noon in Given Courtyard S359 where Marianne Burke, MA., will discuss: Why Did a Clinical Evidence Technology Fail to Make a Difference in Patient Skin Disease Outcomes? A Mixed Methods Evaluation

As well as Benjamin Littenberg, MD., Facts vs. Fake News: Using data to navigate complex social conversations about health and justice

I will discuss the availability of data from the Cook County (Chicago) Open Data project ( which contains the records of every arrest, charge, trial and defendant processed by the Cook County State’s Attorney from 2010 through 2017. The data include 24 variables on 733,000 arrests, 16 variables on 299,000 arrestees, 29 variables on 655,000 case dispositions (charges filed), and 36 variables on 189,000 sentencing decisions, including the details of each offense, the law enforcement agency involved, the actions of the county and the courts, the name of the presiding judge, the dates of offense, arrest, arraignment, trial, and sentencing, and the length and type of any sentence. Importantly, the data include several key social variables including age, gender, and race of the accused and the location (city) of the event. 
I'm looking for input on:
•	What questions can profitably be asked from these data?
•	How can we connect them to health?
•	How should these data be used to advance discussion on justice, health and other social issues?

We hope to see you there!
