Cardiovascular Disease Hospitalizations Data

Tracking heart attacks will help to examine trends in hospital admissions; identify seasonal patterns; evaluate heart attacks by age, gender, and race/ethnicity; and identify populations in need of targeted interventions. Our cardiovascular disease data come from hospitalizations and this indicator estimates the number and rate. The cardiovascular disease data include:

  • Health outcome (heart attack)
  • State and county of residence
  • Year of hospitalization
