The County Health Rankings measure the health of nearly every county in the nation.

Published online at countyhealthrankings.org, the Rankings help counties understand what influences how healthy residents are and how long they live. 
A collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, theRankings look at a variety of measures that affect health, including high school graduation rates, access to healthy foods, smoking, obesity, and teen births. The Rankings are unique in their ability to measure the overall health of each county in all 50 states. 
This County Health Rankings Key Findings Report explores national and regional trends and offers an in-depth review of how five featured measures—children in poverty, college attendance, preventable hospital stays, smoking, and physical inactivity—influence health.
