National Oral Health Surveillance System Adult Indicators

$179 / year

This dataset includes information from Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) for indicators of adult oral health for even years from 2012 through 2014. National estimates are represented by the median prevalence among 50 states and the District of Columbia data. Estimates are prepared from the BRFSS public use data sets.

Complexity

This dataset is provided by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Oral Health. National Oral Health Surveillance System (NOHSS) is a collaborative effort between CDC’s Division of Oral Health and the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors (ASTDD). In this dataset estimates are prepared from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) public use data sets. Estimates in this file are not age adjusted, and may differ slightly from estimates available from the BRFSS website or Chronic Disease Indicators due to small differences in definition, age adjustment or rounding.

NOHSS is designed to monitor the burden of oral disease, use of the oral health care delivery system, and the status of community water fluoridation on both a national and state level. It is also designed to track oral health surveillance indicators based on data sources and surveillance capacity available to most states. The Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) were instrumental in developing the framework for chronic disease surveillance indicators, including these oral health indicators.

Oral Health Data includes the following indicators of adult oral health from the NOHSS:
– Dental Visit. Adults aged 18+ who have visited a dentist or dental clinic in the past year.
– Teeth Cleaning. Adults aged 18+ who have had their teeth cleaned in the past year (among adults with natural teeth who have ever visited a dentist or dental clinic). Please note: Data for this indicator is not available for years after 2010.
– Complete Tooth Loss. Adults aged 65+ who have lost all of their natural teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease.
– Lost 6 or More Teeth. Adults aged 65+ who have lost six or more teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease.
– Oral Health Data displays prevalence estimates for these indicators without adjustment for age. When comparing estimates between two states, consider the age differences in the state populations.

The data value unit used for this dataset is percentage.
