Interactive Web Applications & Data

CDC’s collection of interactive applications.

Chronic Diseases

The Chronic Disease Indicators (CDI) are a set of surveillance indicators developed by consensus among CDC, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD). CDI enables public health professionals and policymakers to retrieve uniformly defined state and selected metropolitan-level data for chronic diseases and risk factors that have a substantial impact on public health.

U S Cancer Statistics Data Visualization tool provides information on the numbers and rates of new cancer cases and deaths at the national, state, and county levels. Users can see the numbers by sex, age, race and ethnicity, trends over time, survival, and prevalence.

NIH/NCI State Cancer Profilesexternal icon: provides dynamic views of cancer statistics for prioritizing cancer control efforts across the nationexternal icon.

The United States Diabetes Surveillance System (USDSS) provides an atlas of diabetes surveillance data at the state and county levels. The online mapping tool allows users to view geographic patterns and examine trends over time across the United States and within states. The state atlas provides a query-based database that can display data across many indicators related to diabetes using maps, data heat maps, and a series of other interactive graphs. The county atlas provides maps, motion charts, and other interactive graphs to display data on diabetes and risk factors related to diabetes.

Disability and Health Data System (DHDS) is an online interactive tool that provides instant access to state-level, disability-specific health data. Users can identify health disparities between adults with and without disabilities.

Interactive Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke is an online mapping tool that allows users to create county-level maps of heart disease and stroke by race/ethnicity, gender, and age group, along with maps of social and economic factors and health services for the entire United States or for a chosen state or territory.

The Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Surveillance System documents CKD and its risk factors in the US population over time, tracks progress in efforts to achieve Healthy People objectives in CKD prevention and control, and provides the means for assessing quality improvement efforts by federal and nonfederal agencies.

The 500 Cities Project a collaboration between CDC, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the CDC Foundation. The project provides city- and census tract-level small area estimates for chronic disease risk factors, health outcomes, and clinical preventive service use for the largest 500 cities in the United States.

Infectious Diseases

CDC Influenza Surveillance System presents weekly national, regional, and state level surveillance.

The NCHHSTP AtlasPlus gives you the power to use HIV, STD, hepatitis, and TB data to create maps, charts, and detailed reports, and analyze trends and patterns.

CDC’s Patient Safety Atlas contains interactive data sets on antibiotic resistance, healthcare-associated infections, and other related information.

The VaxView websites provide vaccination coverage data for all ages. Monitoring coverage for recommended vaccinations across the country helps CDC assess how well local areas, states, and the nation are protected from vaccine-preventable diseases.

Social/Behavioral/Environmental

The Interactive National Environmental Public Health Tracking Network has data on some environmental hazards, exposures, and chronic health conditions.

Global Tobacco Surveillance System Data (GTSSData) houses and displays data from four tobacco-related surveys conducted around the world. The purpose of GTSSData is to enhance countries’ capacity to monitor tobacco use, guide national tobacco prevention, and control programs, and facilitate comparison of tobacco-related data at the national, regional, and global levels.

Social Vulnerability Index uses 15 U.S. census variables at tract level to help local officials identify communities that may need support in preparing for hazards; or recovering from disaster.

The 500 Cities Project provides city- and census tract-level small area estimates for chronic disease risk factors, health outcomes, and clinical preventive service use for the largest 500 cities in the United States. These small area estimates will allow cities and local health departments to better understand the burden and geographic distribution of health-related variables in their jurisdictions, and assist them in planning public health interventions.

The City Health Dashboardexternal icon offers data on 37 measures for the 500 largest U.S. cities – those with populations of about 66,000 or more – representing approximately one-third of the U.S. population. Equipped with these data, local leaders have a clearer picture of the challenges facing their communities and how to address them.

The CDC Health Information for International Travel (commonly called the Yellow Book) is published every two years as a reference for health professionals providing care to international travelers and is a useful resource for anyone interested in staying healthy abroad. The CDC Yellow Book 2018 codifies the U.S. government’s most current travel health guidelines, including pre-travel vaccine recommendations, destination-specific health advice, and easy-to-reference maps, tables, and charts.
