Chronic/MCH/Oral Health: CD Indicators

CSTE, the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD), and the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) developed the first set of chronic disease indicators (CDIs) in 1999. This cross-cutting set of 73 indicators were designed to allow states, territories, and other jurisdictions to uniformly define, collect, and report data that are important to public health practice. A 2002 CSTE position statement, 02-CD-02, revised the CDIs to reflect expert and stakeholder recommendations. The position statement led to the expansion of the indicator set to 97 indicators spanning 8 categories:

  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Overarching conditions
  • Physical activity and nutrition
  • Tobacco and alcohol use
  • Other diseases and risk factors
In 2011, CSTE, NACDD, and CSSDPHP convened a number of subject matter experts to review and begin the revision process for the third iteration of the CDIs. For more information, please visit
