About the United Health Foundation’s America’s Health Rankings® and Spotlight: Impact of Unhealthy Behaviors
As part of a new and expanded reporting series for 2016, America’s Health Rankings® Spotlight: Impact of Unhealthy Behaviors marks the second of four spotlights to be released this year focused on important markers of our nation’s health, including prevention, substance abuse, and mental health. Spotlights are intended to shine a light on the role that these issues and their associated factors play in our nation’s health. The spotlights complement the America’s Health Rankings® Annual Report and the America’s Health Rankings® Senior Report, as well as new population reports examining the health of women and children and the health of those who have served our country.
