America's Health Rankings® is a composite index of over 20 different metrics that give a annual snapshot of health of a population in each state relative to the other states.

The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” In addition to the contributions of our individual genetic predispositions to disease, health is the result of

  • Our behaviors.
  • The environment and the community in which we live.
  • The public and health policies and practices of our health care and prevention systems.
  • The clinical care we receive.

These four aspects interact with each other in a complex web of cause and effect to create the healthy outcomes we desire, including a long, disease-free, robust life for all individuals regardless of race, gender or socioeconomic status.

IA Overall (1990-2013)
  • Weighted sum of the number of standard deviations each core measure is from the national average.

The measures tracked by America's Health Rankings are those actions that can affect the future health of the population. For a state to improve the health of its population, efforts must focus on these measures, these determinants of health.
