marginal uptick from 18.1 percent in 2008 and a bigger increase from 15.1 percent in 2000, but experts said it's still not enough. "It's pretty discouraging," Bennett noted.
  • According to a new special section in the report, one-quarter of deaths in both the under-65 and over-65 age groups took place at home in 2007, up from one-sixth in 1989. Still, most deaths occurred out of the home, 36 percent in hospitals (down from 49 percent), and 22 percent in nursing homes and other facilities.
  • Infant mortality has declined 2 percent from 2000.
  • Half of middle-aged and older Americans are now having regular colonoscopies, up from one-third in 2000.
  • The smoking rate among adults has largely stabilized, at about 21 percent, while smoking among teens has essentially stalled since 2004, at about 20 percent.
