Measures & Data Sources
Where is my Rank?
We encourage a focus on the data underlying the ranks, and not the ranks themselves. This year, we have displayed data in quartiles to support comparison of a county to a similar grouping in your state, instead of comparing individual ranks.
Message to the Field
This has been an unprecedented time in public health. The path forward requires our continued work—together—to ensure all have the opportunity to thrive. With this release, we offer our state and local public health partners data while acknowledging the time and space they may need to focus on their COVID-19 response efforts.
How to Find a County's Rank
Above is the new quartile graphic which shows how your county fares relative to other counties in your state. If you want your county's rank, you can still find it in several places on the website:
- Select the “Show Rankings” option from either a county snapshot or measure page.
- From your state page or county snapshot, select the Overview tab to see your state Health Outcome and Health Factors maps. Hover over a county to see its rank.
- Download the complete Rankings file for your state or the nation.
