    • Description:
      Health, United States, 1981 is the sixth 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. It presents, in a single volume, statistics concerning recent trends in the health care sector and detailed discussion of selected current health issues.

      This report was compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics with the assistance of the National Center for Health Services Research, Office of Health Research, Statistics, and Technology.

      This report is divided into two parts. Part A consists of several analytic articles on selected topics of current interest in the health field. These articles are not intended to cover all the important health issues. Many significant topics are not addressed because of constraints in report size and data availability. Part B consists of 79 detailed statistical tables that are organized around four major subject areas-health status and determinants, utilization of health resources, health care resources, and health care expenditures-and includes a guide to the detailed tables. There are also two appendixes that provide descriptions of the data sources and a glossary of terms.

      This edition of Health, United States continues the approach used during the previous 2 years by emphasizing trends and comparisons over time. Once again, the detailed tables emphasize age-adjusted data. This was necessary for two reasons. First, the elderly constitute a growing pro-portion of the U.S. population and second, several demographic subgroups of the population have different age structures. By adjusting for age, data can be compared more easily over time and for different groups.
