Notice to Readers: Publication of Health, United States, 2007
CDC's National Center for Health Statistics has published Health, United States, 2007, the 31st edition of the annual report on the nation's health. The report includes 151 detailed trend tables organized around four broad subject areas: health status and determinants, health-care use, health-care resources, and health-care expenditures. Many of the trend tables provide information on racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in health.
The report also includes the 2007 Chartbook on Trends in the Health of Americans, which assesses the current state of the nation's health and how it is changing over time, both positively and negatively, by presenting trends and information on selected determinants and measures of health status. Determinants of public health examined in the chartbook include demographic factors, health-insurance coverage, health behaviors, and preventive health care. Measures of health status and risk factors focus on trends in mortality and limitations of activity caused by chronic health conditions. The 2007 Chartbook includes a special feature on access to needed or recommended health-care services. It also presents information on financial barriers to receipt of health-care services, including lack of health insurance and high out-of-pocket expenses, and nonfinancial barriers to care, including lack of transportation and limited supply of health services or providers.
