2015 County Health Rankings -- Hawaii

LINK: Hawaii 2015 Health Rankings Overview

From Robert Wood Johnson Foundation County Health Rankings, March, 2015

INTRODUCTION

The County Health Rankings & Roadmaps program helps communities identify and implement solutions that make it easier for people to be healthy in their homes, schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) collaborates with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (UWPHI) to bring this program to cities, counties, and states across the nation. Ranking the health of nearly every county in the nation, the County Health Rankings illustrate what we know when it comes to what is making people sick or healthy. The Roadmaps to Health and RWJF Culture of Health Prize show what we can do to create healthier places to live, learn, work, and play.

WHAT ARE THE COUNTY HEALTH RANKINGS?

Published online at countyhealthrankings.org, the Rankings help counties understand what influences how healthy residents are and how long they will live. The Rankings are unique in their ability to measure the current overall health of each county in all 50 states. They also look at a variety of measures that affect the future health of communities, such as high school graduation rates, access to healthy foods, rates of smoking, obesity, and teen births. Communities use the Rankings to identify and garner support for local health improvement initiatives among government agencies, healthcare providers, community organizations, business leaders, policy makers, and the public.

MOVING FROM DATA TO ACTION

Roadmaps to Health help communities bring people together to look at the many factors that influence health, select strategies that work, and make changes that will have a lasting impact. The Roadmaps focus on helping communities move from awareness about their county’s ranking to action to improve people’s health. The Roadmaps to Health Action Center is a one‐stop shop of information to help any community member or leader who wants to improve their community’s health by addressing factors that we know influence health, such as education, income, and community safety.
