Use the plus and minus buttons to increase and decrease your rate for the measures below.  You can add other measures to this page by clicking on the Change Measures button and selecting up to 5 items below.

Increasing or decreasing your rate only changes the indicated measure; it does not account for likely changes in other metrics that accompany interventions.  For example, an intervention to reduce smoking prevalence can also impact cardiovascular deaths, cancer deaths, preventable hospitalizations, and obesity.
