What is a health indicator?
Health indicators are measurable characteristics that describe the health of a population (e.g., life expectancy, mortality, disease incidence or prevalence, or other health states), determinants of health (e.g., health behaviors, health risk factors, physical environments, and socioeconomic environments); and health care access, cost, quality, and use.
What is the Health Indicators Warehouse?
The Health Indicators Warehouse is a new data hub from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Browse or search health indicators by topic, region or health initiative (like Healthy People 2020). Easily visualize data through tables, maps or graphs.
