Explore the set of 55 life course indicators by Category, Data Source, or Domain (tabs) and click on the names to expand the section. Individual indicators are denoted by an ID number (e.g. LC-47) and include numerous details, such as a brief description, numerator, denominator, data source, similar measures in other indicator sets, and national comparison data, where appropriate. Throughout Spring 2019, AMCHP will continue to add PDF narratives for each indicator, which will include important notes on calculating the indicator as well as information on how the indicator aligns with the data and life course screening criteria.
