Assessment Tool for Evaluating Emergency and Disaster Shelters Shelters provide refuge for communities and at-risk poplations during and after emergencies and disasters. Effe. tive emergency response requires that environmental hea practitioners rapidly assess the health and safety of the shelte environment for these populations.
To help meet this challenge, CDC and partners have developed an environmental health shelter assessment for (available in English and Spanish) that covers general aren of environmental health, such as food safety, sanitation. and service and companion animal care. It also provide space for listing immediate needs. The form provides gudance and information that environmental health practitio ners and shelter managers can use with existing plans. procedures, resources, and management systems.
The environmental health shelter assessment tool, including the assessment form, instructions for its use, and training materials, is available at http://www.emergency.cdc.go shelterassessment.

Percentage of Adults Aged >25 Years with Limitation of Activity Caused by One or More Chronic Conditions,* by Education Level and Sex National Health Interview Survey, United States, 2006+
* Limitation in usual activity is determined from responses to a series of questions
† Estimates are age adjusted using the projected 2000 U.S. population as the
§ General Educational Development.
In 2006, persons who had less than a high school diploma were more than twice as likely as persons who had a bachelor's degree or higher to be limited in their usual activities because of one or more chronic conditions. At lower education levels (less than a high school diploma or a high school or GED diploma), women were more likely than men to be limited in usual activities. At higher education levels, no significant difference in limitation was observed between men and women.
