Cardiovascular Health in Iowa

According to The American Heart Association, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the state. Iowa has the 25th highest death rate from cardiovascular disease in the country. 18% of the population smokes, and 66% of Iowa residents are overweight or obese.

Iowa benefits from a high percentage of high school graduation, a low percentage of population without insurance, and a low prevalence of low birthweight, but struggles with a high prevalence of excessive drinking, a high prevalence of obesity, and a large disparity in health status by educational attainment according to America's Health Rankings. Since the 1990 edition, cardiovascular deaths decreased 34% from 374.6 to 245.9 deaths per 100,000 population.
