Cardiovascular Health in Illinois

According to The American Heart Association, heart disease is the second leading cause of death in the state. Illinois has the 20th highest death rate from cardiovascular disease in the country. 15% of the population smokes, and 66% of Illinois residents are overweight or obese.

Illinois benefits from a low prevalence of smoking, a higher number of primary care physicians, and low prevalence of frequent mental distress, but struggles with a high prevalence of excessive drinking, a high level of air pollution, and high rate of cancer deaths according to America's Health Rankings. In the past year, the percentage of the population without health insurance decreased 25% from 11.2% to 8.4%.
