    • Description:
      "Health, United States, 1989 is the 14th annual report on the health status of the Nation submitted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services to the President and Congress of the United States in compliance with Section 308 of the Public Health Service Act. This volume also contains the fourth triennial Prevention Profie, submitted by the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to the President and the Congress of the United States in compliance with the Health Services and Centers Amendments of 1978 (Public Law 95626). These reports were compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control. The 1989 Prevention Prafile serves as an integral part of the Department's overall disease prevention and health promotion initiative by providing data to chart progress toward the five broad goals published in Healthy People: The Surgeon General's Report on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention, It also delineates all of the 1990 objectives contained in Promoting Health/Preventing Disease: Objectives for the Nation and presents data, where available, to measure and evaluate progress since the objectives were established. Health, United States, 1989 presents statistics concerning recent trends in the health care sector. The 13 1 detailed tables in this year's report are organized around four major subject areas-health status-and determinants, utilization of health resources, health care resources, and health care expenditures. The detailed tables are designed to show continuing trends in health statistics. A major criterion used in selecting the detailed tables is the availability of comparable national data." - p. iii
