The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), through its Division of Population Health (DPH), provides information on Chronic Disease Indicators (CDI) that allows states and territories to uniformly define, collect, and report chronic disease data important to public health practice. In addition to providing access to indicator data, the CDI website provides a gateway to additional information and data resources.
The Chronic Disease Indicators system is an electronic repository of current and historical data and provides data on over 200 indicators. The system provides easier access to data and user customization of visualizations. Using the system will result in enhanced chronic disease surveillance, better-informed policymaking, and facilitation of chronic disease program evaluation by state/territory and large health departments.
