  • Description:
    The CDC's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) is the Nation's principal health statistics agency, providing data to identify and address health issues. NCHS compiles statistical information to help guide public health and health policy decisions. Collaborating with other public and private health partners, NCHS employs a variety of data collection mechanisms to obtain accurate information from multiple sources. NCHS' data provides a broad perspective to help us understand the population's health, influences on health, and health outcomes. Injuries take a toll on the population, including imposing social and economic costs on society. NCHS health interview data and data on deaths, hospitalizations, emergency department, and other ambulatory visits associated with injuries document the impact of injuries on Americans. Policymakers use these data to design and direct intervention efforts at the national, state, and local levels.
