Surveillance helps us to understand:  
  • How many Utahns have a type of heart disease, such as high blood pressure, or have experienced stroke
  • How many Utahns have risk factors for heart disease and stroke, such as obesity/overweight, low physical activity, and cigarette smoking
  • Subpopulations that have higher rates of cardiovascular disease compared to the general Utah population, such as older adults, men, and people who live in certain geographic areas
  • How Utah compares to the U.S. in terms of heart disease and stroke
  • How the impact of heart disease and stroke changes over time
