Surveillance and Evaluation Data Resource Guide
Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Programs
What Is the Surveillance & Evaluation Guide?
The Surveillance and Evaluation Data Resource Guide for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Programs is an at-a-glance compilation of data sources useful for heart disease and stroke prevention programs conducting policy or data surveillance and/or evaluation.
This guide addresses the broad spectrum of programs supported by the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) and not all sources are applicable to all programs.
Who Should Use the Guide?
The guide can be used by program managers and evaluators in the planning and evaluation stages of heart disease and stroke prevention programs.
Additional evaluation resources are available at DHDSP’s Evaluation Resources.
How Should the Guide Be Used?
Data from the guide can be used to compare program impact and outcomes with those of other states and the nation. The data sources are organized by major categories: national and state surveys and tools, registries and vital statistics, and topic-specific tools, such as National, State, and Local Policy tracking.
