“Interactive Atlas of Heart Disease and Stroke”

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, and is a contributing factor in one out of every three deaths every year.  This application, by the Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP), includes brand new data that tracks heart disease and stroke by state of residence, allowing users to view heart disease and stroke numbers at the county level.  It also allows users to view local rates of social health determinants such as poverty and education level.  The mission of the DHDSP  is to provide the public with knowledge about cardiovascular health and reduce the burden faced by the public by heart disease and stroke.
