This year, PAHO celebrates a milestone achievement, the 25th anniversary of the publication of Core Indicators. Every year for the past quarter-century, this publication has provided the latest information on key health and health-related indicators for the Americas. The Core Indicators database contains a series of data from 1995 to 2019, and longer data series where available, for countries and territories in the Region of the Americas. These data are comparable to allow for trend analysis over time, by indicators, subregion, or country.
Core Indicators 2019: Health Trends in the Americas
Core Indicators 2019: Health Trends in the Americas starts with a demographic overview of the Americas to demonstrate how the Region has changed over 25 years. These key demographic indicators provide valuable context to better understand the population’s characteristics and their impact on health. Brief narratives accompany the graphics to highlight important information.
