The County Health Rankings are designed as a call to action – the use of ranks can often serve as a more effective tool for drawing attention to community health issues than lengthy listings of indicators. We encourage any community that has not already done so to use the Rankings as a stimulus to engage community members in a more detailed community health assessment, using whatever additional data sources they have available. The Rankings can be used as a pointer to suggest areas where more in-depth analysis might be helpful.
