Peer Counties Tool
County Health Rankings & Roadmaps and CDC's Community Health Status Indicators (CHSI) have teamed up to offer an enhanced peer county comparison feature. This Excel file provides information on the groups of counties that could be considered peers based on key demographic, social, and economic indicators. To utilize this feature, please locate your county (by county name or FIPS code) in the second tab of this file. The number in the "Peer County Group" column indicates the peer cluster for your county. To learn about others in this peer county group, you can sort or filter the spreadsheet for other counties in this group. Once you have identified the counties in your peer group, you can use the CHR&R compare counties feature to explore the health factors and outcomes across counties in your peer group. It can be found in Exploring the Data.
