Florida Department of Health Addresses County Health Rankings

Full Story
Tallahassee, Fla. — The Florida Department of Health announced today the release of the 2017 County Health Rankings and Roadmaps (Rankings). A collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, the Rankings are a snapshot of the health of counties across the country. Data used to determine the Rankings include information about physical environments, social and economic factors, health behaviors and clinical care. The Rankings are compiled using county-level measures from a variety of national and state data sources, much of which is available from the department on FLHealthCharts.
