The Burden of Cardiovascular Disease in California: A Report of the California Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program

The Burden of Cardiovascular Disease in California: A Report of the California Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program is an effort consistent with the mission of the California Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program: To reduce premature death and disability from heart disease and stroke among Californians.

The purpose of this report is to present data on heart disease, stroke, heart failure, and related risk factors, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, cigarette smoking, overweight and obesity, and physical inactivity.  When possible and appropriate, these data are presented overall and by gender, race/ethnicity, age, educational attainment, income, and residence.  National data are provided for comparisons with state data.

The information presented in this report will support public health programs dedicated to reducing the burden of cardiovascular disease, in California and elsewhere, through both primary and secondary prevention efforts.  This report serves as a companion document to California's Master Plan for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention and Treatment 2007-2015.
