The Health of the States Summary Report

Publication date: 
Wednesday, October 26, 2016

The Center on Society and Health, in partnership with the Urban Institute, has recently released the first report in a series to come out of The Health of the States (HOTS) project. Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, HOTS is an analysis ranking states on dozens of health outcomes and examining the links between those outcomes and over 100 determinants of health.

The report turned up some interesting trends, and further confirmed the importance of social, economic, and environmental factors in shaping our health. You can use this analysis to see where states are doing well, where they can improve, and what determinants may act as levers to improve health in those problem areas.

The report is attached below. To learn more about the project and methods, visit The Center on Society and Health's website
