They’re providing affordable, high-quality primary health care to millions of people nationwide. HRSA expects to publish the 2021 Uniform Data System (UDS) data on Monday, August 8.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has shared a new resource from the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention. The Local Trends in Heart Disease and Stroke Mortality report provides detailed maps and graphics documenting county-level heart disease and stroke mortality and trends within each state. The report includes data for most counties in all states, including the most rural. This report can be used to enhance and inform cardiovascular disease prevention and treatment programs and policies.
For each state, the Local Trends in Heart Disease and Stroke Mortality report includes:
- County-level maps of death rates for coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke
- County-level maps of trends in CHD and stroke death rates
- Figures depicting comparisons of county-level death rates and historical trends for CHD & stroke
- All graphics are presented by age group (ages 35-64; ages 65 and older)
- A CSV file containing all data used to make the report.
The Local Trends in Heart Disease and Stroke Mortality report for each state, along with the underlying dataset, is available by request. To get the report, please contact Adam Vaughan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, the data are available on chronicdata.cdc.gov.
