Data to Action
CDC has created new data and analysis tools that are intended to serve as resources for you. You can use the information to promote policy, system and environmental changes to improve health.
A dedicated web site that offers a snapshot of our nation’s health, highlighting recent successes and challenges in fighting critical health problems in the United States (U.S.). Up-to-date dashboards, resources, videos and printable fact sheets and infographics are available to inform and guide public health work.
An interactive data set composed of behavioral risk factors and health indicators, the Sortable Stats site compiles state-level data for all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and U.S. territories. The tool links to related CDC resources – including Vital Signs, MMWR, NCHS Vital Statistics and the Health Indicators Warehouse – to create quick connections to additional information and guidance about how to address these health challenges.
With the Sortable Stats 2.0 tool, you can:
- View, sort, and analyze data at the state, regional and national levels.
- Sort indicator data by demographic categories (e.g., race, gender, age) and historical trends.
- View data in graphs, tables and maps.
- Easily export data to Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint, or for use in other materials.
