Identifying health disparities is pivotal to creating the circumstances in which health equity can be achieved. The Rankings look at a variety of measures that affect the future health of communities through this lens of equity, including: high school graduation rates, access to healthy foods, rates of smoking, obesity, and teen births and determines rankings among counties in a state, and states relative to others in the nation. The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps are a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
