County Health Rankings come from the Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health Project, a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin’s Population Health Institute.
The rankings are comprised of two overarching categories: Health Outcomes and Health Factors. Rankings show each county’s comparative position within the state: the county receiving number 1 is regarded the healthiest in the state.
The Health Outcomes ranking measures how healthy a community is. This ranking is composed of 5 indicators in 2 divisions: Mortality (e.g., premature death) and Morbidity (e.g., poor physical health days). Washington has a health outcomes ranking of NA.
The Health Factors ranking measures things that shape a community’s health outcomes. This ranking is composed of 22 indicators in 4 divisions: Health Behavior (e.g., adult smoking), Clinical Care (e.g., uninsured adults), Social & Economic Factors (e.g., unemployment), and Physical Environment (e.g., air pollution). Washington has a health factors ranking of NA.
