What are Chronic Disease Indicators?

The Chronic Disease Indicators (CDI) are a set of surveillance indicators developed by consensus among CDC, the Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE), and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD).  These indicators are essential for surveillance, prioritization, and evaluation of public health interventions. Chronic Disease Indicators include data from many sources that illustrate the impact of various chronic disease conditions.  Much of the data presented here can be found in other areas of this site such as Deaths Data, Health Behaviors (BRFSS) and others. We have compiled related Chronic Disease Data here in one place for your convenience.
