Introduction to HealthStats Indicator Reports

Welcome to the HealthStats Indicator Reports page. A health indicator is a numeric measure that depicts the status of a population or a health system on a core public health construct. An indicator report, sometimes referred to as an indicator profile, provides online numerical data for a health indicator as well as its public health context, including what the current status is and what is being done to improve it.

Indicator reports provide an overview of a specific public health issue in North Carolina. For more detailed information about Indicator Reports see the Indicator Report Contents and Usage page.
