Identification of those at risk for development of CKD forms an integral part of a CKD surveillance system. First, examining changes in the burden of risk factors for CKD can help predict the potential future burden of CKD. For example, if the prevalence of an important risk factor is rising, it is likely that the prevalence of CKD will rise accordingly. Second, assessing the burden of risk factors can also help identify which interventions are likely to have the most impact on reducing the burden of CKD. Early intervention in those with risk factors may help prevent or delay the onset of CKD, or in the case of established CKD, help slow progression or reduce related morbidity and mortality.

Inequities related to social determinants of health, such as income, education, food security, access to health care, and environmental factors (e.g., air pollution), have been related to a wide range of health and quality-of-life outcomes. Understanding the role of social and environmental determinants of health at all levels of kidney disease prevention (primary, secondary, and tertiary) is the key to reducing health disparities and improving the quality of health care. The distribution of county-level estimates of chronic kidney disease within the context of important social and environmental factors are visualized in the following maps, based on Medicare beneficiaries aged ≥ 65 years. We will continue to expand this section in subsequent iterations of the kidney disease surveillance website.
