Abstract

Metrics are an important part of the assessment of public health. They include traditional measures of mortality and newly described summary measures to describe the disability engendered by diseases. Epidemiology has transformed the understanding of risk factors for disease; however, a holistic approach includes recognition of social determinants and the neighborhood and communities where the people most at risk reside.
