Abstract
This report is the first phase of a larger project to generate indicators of disparities in care and unmet need in Alaska. It provides prevalence estimates of serious behavioral health disorders. Prevalence estimates provide a standardized basis for defining the need for services in a population. The second phase of this larger project assesses the number of individuals who actually receive services. The third phase combines the information to generate indicators of unmet need and disparities in care. The project is an initiative of the Division of Behavioral Health (the Division) of the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services. The Division contracted with the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Mental Health Program to facilitate the project. Phase I prevalence estimates were generated by an epidemiologist who has developed a technology specifically for this purpose. The synthetic estimation technology has been used for mental disorders by ten western states; Alaska is the first to use the substance use estimates.

Abstract
INTRODUCTION: Daily cigarette smoking among US adolescents remains a significant public health problem. Understanding risk is important in order to develop strategies to reduce this type of tobacco use. Purpose: The primary objective of this research was to examine whether rural residency is an independent risk factor for being a daily smoker among adolescents ages 12 to 18 years.METHODS: This is a cross-sectional study where univariate, bivariate, and multivariate analyses were performed on a merged 1997-2003 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System dataset to determine whether rural residence was a significant risk factor for daily cigarette smoking, after adjusting for demographic factors.RESULTS: Using daily smoking as the dependent variable, initial multivariate analyses revealed that adolescents who lived either in suburban (OR=.34, CI=.32, .36) or urban (OR=.33, CI=.31, .35) locales were less likely to become daily smokers than adolescents living in rural locales. Subsequent logistic regression analysis yielded that rural youths who became daily smokers were more likely to: have used smokeless tobacco products in the past 12 months (OR=1.25, CI=1.04,1.51); be female (OR=1.42, CI=1.23, 1.64); be Caucasian (OR=1.53, CI=1.28, 1.84); have first smoked a whole cigarette when they were 12 years of age or younger (OR=2.08, CI=1.82, 2.38); and have smoked at school in the past 30 days (OR=14.52, CI=11.97, 17.60).CONCLUSIONS: The results indicate that rural residency is a risk factor for tobacco use among US youth.

Abstract
This edition of the Alaska MCH Data Book will provide policy makers, public health professionals and health care providers with critical data on leading issues affecting women before, during and after pregnancy, and preschool age children. This book is unique in that it reports all analyses by Alaska Native status and, in some cases, by tribal health region. The goal of this book is to provide data that can be used in both tribal and non-tribal programs to design, implement, monitor, and evaluate programs. By focusing on Alaska Native status these data will be particularly helpful to health care staff and administrators in areas of rural Alaska that serve predominantly Alaska Native people. Please share with us how you have used the data published here. You may contact the PRAMS/CUBS staff by e-mail at mch-epi@alaska.gov or by phone at 1-888-269-3470.

Abstract
This report provides an overview of the health status of Alaska Native people. By using data to monitor health status, significant improvements in health over time can be demonstrated. In addition, health areas that are a concern, or for which a disparity exists, can be readily identified. This report covers population demographics, leading causes of mortality and morbidity, as well as adolescent and adult lifestyle risk factors. Additional health status topics include maternal and child health, cancer and cancer screening, immunizations, diabetes, infectious diseases, environmental health, and dental health. At the end of this report, the reader will find region-specific health status overviews and how each region compares to the Alaska Native population statewide on selected measures.

Abstract
The survey of Alaska's health by the Graduate School of Public Health, University of Pittsburgh, was requested by the Department of the Interior. It was conducted during 1953 and 1954 by a team of 18 specialists with a diversity of skills. Most of the team traveled extensively in the Territory, observing problems at first hand and interviewing many Alaskans in all walks of life.
