County Statistics

The County Health Rankings show us that where we live matters to our health. The health of a community depends on many different factors – ranging from individual health behaviors, education and jobs, to quality of health care, to the environment. Improving community health requires people from multiple fields to work collaboratively on an ongoing cycle of activities. Communities come in many different sizes, shapes and colors. They vary widely in their assets and needs, in the priorities they select to address, and the policies and programs they implement to improve the health of local populations. As a result, community health improvement efforts also vary. In the midst of all this variety is one constant: people working together. One of the first steps in local health improvement is to take stock of your community’s needs and resources. You will want to take a close look to understand what helps, as well as what hinders progress toward improving your community’s health. Finding programs and policies that work in real life will maximize your chances of success. Not every well-intentioned program or policy is effective. Taking the time to search out evidence of programs and policies that work to improve particular problems or issues will be time well spent.
