The expansion of America’s Health Rankings® in 2016 is two-fold, and two major population-level reports will be introduced along with a series of Spotlight reports.
America’s Health Rankings® Maternal and Child Health Report will be the focus of the first new population-level report. In this report, America’s Health Rankings® will provide a holistic scorecard of the health of women of reproductive age, health during pregnancy, and infant and child health. Like the Senior Report, it will contain measures on behaviors, community & environment, policy, clinical care, and outcomes for each state.
America’s Health Rankings® Veterans’ Health will debut second and will focus on the behavioral differences between those who provide service to the country and the general population.
The first two Spotlights have already been released; Spotlight: Prevention focuses on the variation of clinical prevention measures across the states and Spotlight: Impact of Unhealthy Behaviors quantifies the impact of multiple unhealthy behaviors on the population’s overall health status. Additional Spotlights will be forthcoming. The Spotlights complement, leverage, and amplify the information contained in the larger population reports.
