Review Your County Health Rankings Data
The County Health Rankings provide a snapshot of your community’s health and a starting point for improving health and increasing health equity.
From your snapshot, you’ll be able to review data used to calculate your county’s current rank. Your snapshot can help you understand how long and how well residents in your county are living.
Find your county snapshot
- Go to Explore Health Rankings on the orange navigation bar above.
- Enter your state or county name under Find County Rankings.
- Select your county.
Use the Areas to Explore and Areas of Strength buttons at the top of your county snapshot to highlight potential challenges your community may want to examine more closely and factors that are assets in your community.
You can also find data by race/ethnicity for many of our measures. In your county's snapshot, disaggregated data can be found in measures with blue underlined values. Click on the value to learn more about the size and nature of health differences by race/ethnicity in your community.
What does it mean?
Explore Your Snapshot will help you interpret your county’s data. It can also help you think about additional questions to ask and sources of data to explore.
Beyond county lines
The work of improving health doesn’t always fit neatly into county lines. The community you’re focused on might extend across multiple counties or sit within a small area of a county. If county-level data doesn’t feel relevant, consider using your snapshot to:
- Understand the broader context in which your community exists
- Review the types of measures communities around the nation are using for their assessments
- Compare to your community data
