You can get quandl from ssc to download such data in Stata format.
Instruction are here:
http://www.quandl.com/help/packages/stata

For example, to get annual population of US from 1950-2010 from the
Penn World Tables, you would
-quandl, quandlcode(PENN/USA_POP) clear-

There are other health datasets for the US listed here:
http://www.quandl.com/health/usa-all-health-indicators


Your second question is too vague to be answerable. If you elaborate
on the goals, you may get a better answer. In the mean time,
definitely take a look at the Time Series manual, Introduction to Time
Series Using Stata by Sean Becketti, and German Rodriguez's demography
class notes (http://data.princeton.edu/eco572/).
