Minnesota Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Plan 2011-2020

Updated August 2013

Each indicator helps to evaluate progress on implementing the State Plan. These indicators focus on the Global objectives to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease and stroke; in addition to specific indicators linked to Prevention, Acute Treatment, and Disease Management objectives.

The baseline and current values for each indicator are shown, and change is assessed as better, worse, or stable by statistical significance at the 95% confidence level for vital statistics, survey, and clinical indicators.

* = Due to methodological changes in BRFSS Survey after 2010, ongoing questions from this survey were reassigned 2011 as the baseline year for comparison. These data are not directly comparable to data collected before that year.
= Change in definition between 2010 and 2011 reporting years; recast measure with new definition in earlier year shows improving trend.
