2012 NHLBI Morbidity and Mortality Chart Book

The Morbidity & Mortality: Chart Book on Cardiovascular, Lung, and Blood Diseases is a biennial compilation of data on the size and trends of morbidity and mortality from the cardiovascular, lung, and blood diseases. While most charts describe national prevalence, hospitalizations, and mortality statistics, some of them provide additional information by state or country. Risk factors estimates and the economic costs of these diseases are also included.

This year, the NHLBI is providing two PDF versions of the Chart Book: our standard PDF file that will print out like the printed version, and a PDF file created with improved accessibility for visitors who use screen readers.
