To serve as a call to action for communities to:

  1. Understand the health problems in their community
  2. Get more people involved in improving the health of communities
  3. Recognize that factors outside medical care influence health

Ranking the health of counties using not only traditional health outcomes, but also the broad range of health factors, can mobilize action on the part of governmental public health and in many other sectors that can influence and are affected by health.
