Milken Institute State Chronic Disease Index

The Milken Institute State Chronic Disease Index ranks all 50 states by the concentration of chronic disease ? or the reported cases per capita for each state. Differences in lifestyle (smoking, alcohol abuse, diet, exercise), along with demographics (age distribution, ethnicity) and urbanization partly explain differences in disease rates among the states.
