    "Monitoring the health of the American people is an essential step in making sound health policy and setting research and program priorities. In a Chartbook and 150 detailed tables, Health, United States provides an annual picture of the health of the entire Nation. This year it includes a special feature on medical technology. Health, United States, 2009 is the 33rd report on the health status of the Nation and is 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 Section 308 of the Public Health Service Act. This report was compiled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS). New for the 2009 edition is Health, United States, 2009: In Brief, a companion piece to Health, United States. This short report is intended to focus attention on trends in key health statistics. Each topic highlighted in In Brief is presented in greater detail in the full report. In Brief contains summary information on the health of the American people, including mortality and life expectancy, morbidity and risk factors such as cigarette smoking and overweight/obesity, access to and utilization of health care, insurance coverage, supply of health care resources, and health expenditures. An “At a Glance” table summarizes some of these key indicators at the national level and is followed by selected charts extracted from Health, United States, 2009 that highlight these topics and provide examples of data contained in the full report." - p. 1
