PUBLICATION OF HEALTH, UNITED STATES, 2003 WITH CHARTBOOK ON TRENDS IN THE HEALTH OF AMERICANS

MMWR. 2003;52:997

CDC has published Health, United States, 2003 with Chartbook on Trends in the Health of Americans, the 27th edition of the annual report on the nation's health. This report includes 151 trend tables organized around four broad subject areas: health status and determinants, health-care use, health-care resources, and health-care expenditures. Disparities in health by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status are presented in several tables.

This year's report includes Chartbook on Trends in the Health of Americans. The chartbook assesses the nation's health by presenting trends and information about selected determinants and measures of health status. Determinants of health status include demographic factors, health insurance coverage, health behaviors, and preventive health care; measures of health status focus on trends in mortality and limitations of activity caused by chronic health conditions. Although the overall health of persons in the United States improved substantially during the 20th century, disparities in health and health care among segments of the U.S. population persist. This year's chartbook includes a special focus on diabetes, a leading cause of morbidity and mortality that is consuming an increasing amount of health care resources.

This report is available at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/hus.htm. Additional information is available from the National Center for Health Statistics, telephone 301-458-4636, or at nchsquery@cdc.gov. Print copies can be purchased from the Government Printing Office, telephone 212-512-1800, or at http://bookstore.gpo.gov/index.html.
