Presenting more than twice as many tables as contained in the popular Health, United States, American Health's 14 chapters examine addictions, aging, alternative medicine, attitudes toward health care, births, deaths, disability, diseases and conditions, health care coverage and cost, health care visits, hospital care, mental health, sexual attitudes and behavior, weight and exercise—the whole gamut of our physical and mental well-being."

The 2013-2014 healthcare business market research handbook

Health and Healthcare in the United States

"Providing more than 80 different statistics, this work contains health-care data for each of the nation's more than 3,000 counties and 329 metropolitan areas. The data are alphabetically organized by state and county with a separate section for metropolitan areas. The range of data is extensive: teenage pregnancy rates; deaths by types of cancer; numbers of hospital beds, optometry offices, and nursing homes; and more. The data also include demographics and vital statistics; the oldest data are for 1995, and some figures are as recent as 1998. Most of the information was drawn from the U.S. Bureau of the Census and the National Center for Health Statistics. An especially useful feature are state reference maps outlining counties and metropolitan areas. A CD accompanying the book provides an electronic text version.

Compiled by an experienced health-care data analyst, this work, containing much material that has been either inaccessible or not previously published, provides for the first time extensive health-care profiles of every county and metropolitan area in the U.S. Its specialized nature and high cost might restrict its purchase to health science libraries or major research libraries."*
