CDC and the National Association for Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) Release State of Aging and Health In America: Data Brief Series

State of Aging and Health in America: Data Brief Series  are topic-specific documents focusing on public health issues related to older adults. The Subjective Cognitive Decline--A Public Health Issue and Caregiving for Family and Friends--A Public Health Issue are the first two in the series to be released.
These briefs provide public health professionals with the most recent data available on health and age-related  conditions, including the importance of brain health, the management of chronic conditions, the burdens of caregiving, to help identify needs and mitigate the future effects of a growing older population.
The briefs also provide data by state, age, gender, and ethnicity that can be used by states and other stakeholders to make informed decisions and policies related to these issues.
