CDC NCHS Health United States

CDC NCHS Health, United States

Every year the National Center for Health Statistics, a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, publishes Health, United States, an annual report on trends in health statistics. In 2017 I was part of the team that created the 474 page book, Health, United States 2016, as well as the 83 page In Brief document containing health statistics for the previous year. My role was to take the information provided by NCHS and design the interior pages. This included typesetting in InDesign adhering to strict guidelines from both the CDC and 508 compliance and creating the graphs and figures within the document.
