What's the HEALTH of YOUR County?

The County Health Rankings is a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. It was created to identify the healthiest and least healthy counties within every state in the nation. When you compare the 50 healthiest counties (one from every state), with the 50 least healthy counties, some striking trends emerge.

This is a first-of-its-kind collection of 50 reports – one per state – that ranks all counties within each state on their overall health. It shows where counties excel and where there is need for improvement.

Here is an interactive website with the county health rankings for the entire nation, I highly recommend exploring this site a bit: http://www.countyhealthrankings.org/ and watching the video.
