New Health Disparities Data Widget Announced by Healthy People 2020 Team!

Posted by on June 15th, 2017 Posted in: Announcements, Data, Health Disparities, Non-NLM Resources, Public Health, Search Tools


The Healthy People 2020 team has announced the release of its health disparities data widget. The widget provides an easy way to find health disparities data related to the Healthy People 2020 objectives for the Leading Health Indicators (LHIs). LHIs are critical health issues that if tackled appropriately will dramatically reduce the leading causes of death and preventable illnesses.

The widget provides charts and graphs of disparities data so you have shareable data at your fingertips. Use the widget to browse data by:

  • Disparity type—including disability, education, income, location, race and ethnicity, and sex
  • Leading Health Indicator

You can also add a version of the widget to your own website! It’s easy to embed the widget on your site to give your users easy access to the latest available disparities data. Once you’ve added the widget, there’s no technical maintenance required. The content will update automatically. Check it out!
