Chronic diseases and injury are Minnesota’s leading causes of death and disability. Together we are working to prevent the most common chronic diseases and injuries, promote access to screenings that detect disease early when treatment is most effective, and help people reach better health by encouraging ongoing treatment and self-management.

Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) staff selected this set of indicators to provide a snapshot of chronic disease and injury in Minnesota. These indicators can help assess the health of our communities, facilitate collaboration across sectors, identify ways to reduce the burden on our health systems, and motivate action at the State and local levels to improve the health of all Minnesotans.

Not all Minnesotans, however, have what they need to be healthy. That’s why, where available, we’ve included links to data that show health differences by race or ethnicity, sexual orientation, income or economic hardship, or education.
