About the Leading Health Indicators
The Leading Health Indicators are a subset of 26 Heathy People 2020 objectives that communicate high-priority health issues. These indicators can help assess the health of the Nation, encourage collaboration across sectors, and motivate action to improve the health of the U.S. population at the national, state, and community levels.
