How Healthy Is Your County?

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is hosting a teleconference April 3 from 10-11 a.m. ET to release the 2012 County Health Rankings. RWJF collaborated with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute to rank county health relative to other counties in the same state. Counties were judged on health measures including:

·Health Outcomes — rankings based on an equal weighting of one length of life (mortality) measure and four quality of life (morbidity) measures.

·Health Factors — rankings based on weighted scores of four types of factors:

  • Health behaviors
  • Clinical care
  • Social and economic
  • Physical environment

A Twitter Q&A will follow after the session. RSVP for the teleconference here.
