About Us

Picture of couple exercisingVision Statement
A world where people have the individual, the social, and the environmental resources to support the best health-related quality of life and well-being.

Mission Statement
To provide Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) data to the public health community and the general public that can be used to guide policies and programs that improve health-related quality of life and well-being.

Our Work
The HRQOL program in the Division of Population Health provides expertise and support in population HRQOL and well-being assessment to CDC, states, communities, and other public health partners. The primary responsibilities for the program are to carry out surveillance and dissemination of HRQOL and well-being outcomes in the United States using state and national surveys. The program’s other responsibilities include carrying out epidemiological studies assessing risk factors and health disparities associated with HRQOL and well-being and disseminating these findings, and partnering with the academic community on research development (studies, methodology, data, and sample software syntax) for CDC’s HRQOL and well-being measures.
