Committee, C. D. (n.d.). Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists Position Statement. Retrieved from

By unanimous vote, 73 indicators of chronic diseases, conditions and risk factors were approved at the 1998 annual business meeting. This process reflected a consensus on important indicators for chronic disease surveillance, and provided standardized definitions and methodologies for calculating the indicators. The first published set of indicators was released at the annual meeting of ASTCDPD in 1999, with a corresponding data volume released at the CSTE annual meeting in 2000. States have used CDI to guide state and local level analyses of chronic disease data, develop surveillance systems, and construct state health objectives. Since 2000, a process has been underway to revise the chronic disease indicators. After receiving input from stakeholders and subject matter experts, the CDI Work Group, composed of representatives of CSTE, ASTCDPD, and CDC, recommends specific revisions to the existing set of indicators.
