CDC's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention provides fact sheets on heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, men and heart disease, women and heart disease, and more; Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports; online tools; and other resources for heart disease and stroke prevention data.
This application allows users to view county-level maps of heart disease and stroke, along with maps of social environmental conditions and health services for the entire United States or for a chosen state or territory. Congressional boundaries and health care facilities can be added with an overlay.
To meet national- and state-level needs for CVD data, CDC has developed a National Cardiovascular Disease Surveillance System. The system is designed to integrate multiple indicators from many data sources to provide a comprehensive picture of the public health burden of CVDs and associated risk factors in the United States. A key feature of the system is the interactive Data Trends & Maps Web site, which displays these CVD surveillance data. The data are organized by location (national, state, county, and selected sites) and indicator, and they include CVDs (e.g., heart failure), risk factors (e.g., hypertension), and biomarkers (e.g., homocysteine). The data can be plotted as 10-year trends and stratified by age group, sex, and race/ethnicity.
The Morbidity & Mortality: Chart Book on Cardiovascular, Lung, and Blood Diseases is a biennial compilation of data on the size and trends of morbidity and mortality from the cardiovascular, lung, and blood diseases. While most charts describe national prevalence, hospitalizations, and mortality statistics, some of them provide additional information by state or country. Risk factors estimates and the economic costs of these diseases are also included.
The American Heart Association works with government agencies to derive our annual statistics for cardiovascular diseases, including coronary heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure.
