We have updated all of our state and national summaries and data tables with the final year data for Healthy People 2010’s 21 Critical Health Objectives. The data cover six areas: mortality, unintentional injury, violence, substance abuse and mental health, reproductive health and prevention of chronic disease.
This easy-to-use, online database allows users to assess recent progress on these areas by presenting data and text highlights that correspond to the baseline (1998-99) and final (2007-09) measures for the 21 Critical Health Objectives.
The State and National Data Profiles were designed forpeople with varying levels of data fluency and data needs. The data tables,text and additional resources allow users to:
- View data and profiles for each of the 50 states
- Examine differences and disparities by age, race/ethnicity, and gender at national and state levels.
- Compare progress among states (How does your state compare to national data or other similar states?)
- Track changes from baseline to final (Is your state moving in the right direction?)
- Adapt narrative summaries to be used in your own presentations
- Identify priority issues and mobilize resources
The website presents a National Summary and the State summaries. It also includes detailed Notes and Limitations about data collection and presentation; and Tools and Resources, with guidance for using these data to improve adolescent andyoung adult health.
