America’s Health Rankings® is built upon the World Health Organization's definition of health: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
The America’s Health Rankings model, shown below, includes four drivers, or determinants of health: social and economic factors, physical environment, clinical care and behaviors, all of which influence the fifth model category, health outcomes.
As the nation continues to address the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage leaders to engage in data-driven discussions about solutions to the challenges highlighted in this report.
