See Appendix H of Tracking Healthy People 2010 for a complete listing of Leading Health Indicators. High-risk conditions include diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, kidney disease, liver disease, and cancer.

Percents are age-adjusted to the 2000 standard population. Age-adjusted percents are weighted sums of age-specific percents. For a discussion of age adjustment, see Part A, Section 5 of Tracking Healthy People 2010.
