The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) publishes reams of data every day of the year, and this website is a nice place to find germane information quickly with relatively little fuss. At the top of the page, visitors can view press releases that digest recent findings on depression, cancer deaths, the norovirus illness, and brain injury. These reports date back to June 2007, and include summary statistics, along with a narrative description of the findings for each topic. The descriptions are written in non-technical language that can be utilized by journalists, students, and those working in the field of public health. Some of the more recent features include Top 10 Cancers Among Men, Lung Cancer, Obesity Rates, and Painkiller Overdoses. Overall, this is a great resource and one that visitors can keep tabs on via the CDC's social media, which includes a RSS or Twitter feed.
