This site provides access to selected indicators and statistics on chronic diseases for residents of Missouri counties and local areas. Several different community data profiles are available for selection.
The Chronic Disease Comparisons profile allows you to compare deaths, hospitalizations and emergency room visits for major categories of chronic diseases and conditions. Comparisons can be made across counties for a single indicator or across indicators within a county or local geographic area. Users may also view disease-specific data profiles on heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Profile statistics include the number of events, county/city rate, statistical significance, quintile ranking and the state rate. For many of the indicators, trend lines, bar graphs and maps are also available, as well as download options.
INSTRUCTIONS: To access the chronic disease profile data, first choose a profile from the first pull-down menu below then select the county or geography of interest from the second pull-down menu.
