County Health Rankings & Roadmaps
Accelerating national and local momentum to address the many factors that influence health.
Health Is Where We Live
The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program compares the health of nearly all counties in the United States to others within its own state, and supports coalitions tackling the social, economic and environmental factors that influence health.
The annual Rankings provide a revealing snapshot of how health is influenced by where we live, learn, work and play. As the Rankings provide a starting point for change, the Roadmaps provide guidance and tools to understand the data, and strategies that communities can use to move from education to action.
The program is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute to measure the progress of building a Culture of Health.
