Healthy People 2000

Selected Mortality Objectives by States
Healthy People mortality objectives by State have been updated to include the years 1989 through 1997.

Healthy People 2000 includes 26 (unduplicated) objectives based on mortality data.  State-level mortality for all races combined and seven population subgroups (Whites, White non-Hispanics, Blacks, Black non-Hispanics, Hispanics, Asian/Pacific Islanders, and American Indians/Alaska Native) for a majority of objectives are located in a group of Lotus 1-2-3 and Quattro Pro spreadsheets.  Data are presented for the years 1989 through 1997 by single year and 3-year average.  Numbers of deaths (numerators for death rates) come from the National Vital Statistics System of the National Center for Health Statistics. Data are also presented for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-related mortality.  These spreadsheets are available on the CDC/FTP server.  Additional information describing the file format and suppression rules is contained in the "README.TXT" file. Note: files are large (1.0 - 1.6 MB).

Selected Natality Objectives by States
Data regarding selected Natality objectives of Healthy People 2000 are available for States and the District of Columbia by race and Hispanic origin in Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheet format.  Data are included for Adolescent births (surrogate measure for Healthy People 2000 objective 5.1) and 6 of 17 Maternal and Child Health objectives (Healthy People 2000 chapter 14).

Data are from the National Vital Statistics System, National Center for Health Statistics.  Each file contains rates for all races combined, and separately for Whites, Blacks, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Asian/Pacific Islanders, and Hispanics.  Data include single year rates and a 3-year average for the most recent period.   Spreadsheets are available on the CDC/FTP server.  Additional information about the file format and suppression rules is given in the "README.TXT" file.

Health Status Indicators by State
In July 1991, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) introduced a set of Health Status Indicators that were developed in response to Objective 22.1 of Healthy People 2000. This objective responds to the need for health status data that can be used by Federal, State, and local governments. The 18 indicators include measures of health status and/or factors that put individuals at increased risk of disease or premature mortality.

The Health Status Indicators are located in a group of Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheets. The spreadsheets contain State level data for each of the 18 indicators. These tables are available on the CDC/FTP server. Additional information describing the file format is contained in the "README.TXT" file.

Priority Data Needs by States
In July 1991, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also introduced a set of Priority Data Needs (PDNs) in response to Objective 22.1. Although considered important for evaluating the health of a community, could not be included in Health Status Indicators due to inadequate data availability limitations for non-Federal jurisdictions. The most recent State-level Priority Data Needs are now available on the CDC/FTP server as a group of Lotus 1-2-3 spreadsheets. Additional information describing the file format is contained in the "README.TXT" file.
