Health, United States, 2014 by National Center for Health Statistics


Health, United States is the annual report on the health status of the nation, compiled by the National Center for Health Statistics and submitted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services to the President and Congress. Each year, Health, United States examines an important health topic and this year’s special feature explores the health of the 55–64 age group. This group was born during the height of the Baby Boom and will become Medicare eligible over the next 10 years. The feature compares their health to those who were 55-64 years old a decade ago. Adults aged 55-64 are entering a period of life increasingly influenced by chronic conditions, which are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States.
