Trends-at-a-Glance

The Trends-at-a-Glance offers an overview of trend direction measure by measure. Trends noted as stable or NSC (non-significant change) are not changing significantly. The difference between "stable" and "NSC" is based on statistical computations described in the Methodology for Characterizing Trends appendix.

The table below gives a snapshot of trends for measures included in this report. Click on any trend to view the figure(s) associated with that measure. For a more complete summary of the measures, including their progress compared with the Healthy People 2010 target, see the summary tables by topic.
