Announcement: Release of Online US and State Trend Data for Health-Related Quality of Life

JAMA. 2012;307(20):2144. doi:

MMWR. 2012;61:129

CDC has released 1993-2010 overall U.S. and state trend data for Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL).* CDC's HRQOL questions ask about recent perceived physical and mental health and activity limitations.1 Overall U.S. and state estimates are available by sex, age group, and race/ethnicity. Healthy People 2000, 2010, and 2020 identified quality of life improvement as a central public health goal.2 HRQOL enables health agencies to address broader areas of health-related public policy around a common theme, in collaboration with a wider circle of health partners, including social service agencies, health-care systems, community planners, and business groups. Measuring HRQOL will help monitor progress in achieving the nation's health objectives.
