Leading Health Indicators at a Glance

As part of the development of Healthy People 2010, a set of Leading Health Indicators was chosen to reflect major public health concerns in the United States. The Leading Health Indicators were selected on the basis of their ability to motivate action, the availability of data to measure progress, and their importance as public health issues.

The process for selecting Leading Health Indicators for Healthy People 2020 is currently underway and is expected to be completed in September 2011.
