America’s Health Rankings® is built upon the World Health Organization definition of health: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Our model reflects that determinants of health directly influence health outcomes. Individual measures are divided into five categories; a health outcomes category and four categories of health determinants: behaviors, community & environment, policy, and clinical care.
