The CDC National Health Report 2014 offers a snapshot of our nation’s health, highlighting recent successes and challenges in fighting critical health problems in the United States (U.S.). The report finds Americans are living longer, healthier lives, but suggests that more work is needed to ensure that all Americans can achieve optimum health.

The report includes recent trend data on life expectancy, common causes of death, and health behaviors. It includes a scientific paper (CDC National Health Report: Leading Causes of Morbidity and Mortality and Associated Behavior Risk and Protective Factors — United States, 2005-2013), a document, and at-a-glance dashboard charts. The CDC National Health Report web site offers quick access to key resources and tools to advance public health work.
