    • Alternative Title:
      ace & ethnic disparities in heart disease
    • Description:
      Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and risk of heart disease death differs by race and ethnicity.

      This Spotlight explores racial and ethnic disparities in three heart disease topic areas: deaths, reported prevalence, and risk factors. Even though four clinical risk factors—hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and high total cholesterol—are explored here, behavioral risk factors, such as smoking and physical inactivity, also differ by race and ethnicity.

      Health, United States is the annual report on the country’s health, produced by NCHS.

      The report uses data from government sources as well as private and global sources to present national health trends across four areas: Health Status & Determinants, Utilization of Health Resources, Health Care Resources, and Health Care Expenditures & Payers.
