NOTICE TO READERS: PUBLICATION OF HEALTH, UNITED STATES, 2006

MMWR. 2007;56:54

CDC's National Center for Health Statistics has published Health, United States, 2006, the 30th edition of the annual report on the nation's health. The report includes 147 detailed trend tables organized around four subject areas: health status and determinants, health-care use, health-care resources, and health-care expenditures. Many of the trend tables provide information on racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in health.

The report also includes the 2006 Chartbook on Trends in the Health of Americans, which assesses the current state of the nation's health and how it is changing, both positively and negatively, by presenting trends and information on selected determinants and measures of health status. Determinants of public health examined in the chartbook include demographic factors, health-insurance coverage, health behaviors, and preventive health care. Measures of health status and risk factors focus on trends in mortality and limitations of activity caused by chronic health conditions. Although many aspects of the public's health have improved, not all populations have benefited equally. The 2006 Chartbook includes a special focus on pain, which affects physical and mental functioning and can affect quality of life. Patterns of self-reported pain are presented by age, sex, race/ethnicity, and poverty status.

Health, United States, 2006 is available online at http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/hus.htm. Information about the report is available from the National Center for Health Statistics Data Dissemination Branch by telephone, 1-866-441-NCHS, or e-mail, nchsquery@cdc.gov.
