    • Description:
      Health, United States, 2019 is the 43rd report on the health status of the nation and is sI2:I34lth and Human Services to the President and the Congress of the United States in compliance with Section 308 of the Public Health Service Act. This report was compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

      The Health, United States series presents an annual overview of national trends in key health indicators. The 2019 report presents current information and trends on selected measures of morbidity, mortality, health care utilization and access, health risk factors, prevention, health insurance, and personal health care expenditures in a 20-figure Chartbook.

      The Health, United States, 2019 Chartbook is supplemented by several other products, including Trend Tables, an At-a-glance Table, Appendixes, and Spotlight Infographics available for download from the Health, United States website at: index.htm.

      The Health, United States, 2019 Chartbook contains 20 figures and associated data tables on health and health care in the United States. Examining trends in health informs the development, implementation, and evaluation of health policies and programs. The first section (Figures 1–13) focuses on health status and determinants: life expectancy, infant mortality, selected causes of death, drug overdose deaths, suicide, maternal mortality, teen births, preterm singleton births, use of tobacco products, current asthma among children, hypertension, heart disease and cancer, and functional limitation. The second section (Figures 14 and 15) presents trends in health care utilization: use of mammography and colorectal tests and procedures, and unmet need due to cost. The third section (Figures 16 and 17) focuses on health care resources—supply of dentists and physicians. The fourth section (Figures 18–20) describes trends in personal health care expenditures, health insurance coverage, and supplemental insurance among Medicare beneficiaries. The Highlights section summarizes major findings from the Chartbook.
