What Are the Leading Health Indicators?
The Leading Health Indicators will be used to measure the health of
the Nation over the next 10 years. Each of the 10 Leading Health
Indicators has one or more objectives from Healthy People 2010
associated with it. As a group, the Leading Health Indicators reflect
the major health concerns in the United States at the beginning of the
21st century. 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.
