The 2014 Index includes an expanded and revised structure, additional measures, and updated data. The NHSPI was first released in 2013, and guided by stakeholder input, the NHSPI Project Team focused on enhancing two key areas in 2014: healthcare delivery and environmental and occupational health. The 2014 Index links 194 measures across six domains and 18 sub-domains to more fully portray the U.S. and states’ preparedness.
