Release of updated data in Version 1.5.2

We have recently updated the HIW database. The HIW now has estimates for 20 indicators using 2009 mortality data and two indicators using 2008 infant mortality data. In addition, we reformatted 17 indicators from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System so that estimates of a similar type are formatted the same for all data years.
