County Health Rankings (United States)
"The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. We believe America can become a nation where getting healthy, staying healthy, and making sure our children grow up healthy are top priorities. We have a vision of an America where we all strive together to build a national Culture of Health that enables all in our diverse society to lead healthy lives, now and for generations to come.
The goals of the program are to:
- Build awareness of the multiple factors that influence health
- Provide a reliable, sustainable source of local data to communities to help them identify opportunities to improve their health
- Engage and activate local leaders from many sectors in creating sustainable community change, and
- Connect & empower community leaders working to improve health."
