CDC Statistics and Slide Sets

The CDC website has a fantastic collection of statistical data. There is a goldmine of information, but it takes some exploring to unearth these hidden gems.

Here are different ways of getting to stats from the CDC homepage:

(1) Browse the topics under the Data & Statistics section on the right side of the CDC homepage.

(2) Under the Diseases & Conditions section, a statistics link is often in the left margin of major health topic pages.
For example, Heart Disease.

(3) Browse the Injury, Violence & Safety section for statistical information in the left margins of the topic pages. For example,
Injury Data and Maps.

View this short narrated video below that shows how to find statistics and slide sets on particular topics.
