Welcome to SHADAC's State Health Compare!

SHADAC has launched a new web tool that merges SHADAC's Data Center with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Data Hub. State Health Compare expands the health care discussion beyond a focus on coverage and allows analysts and policymakers to view state-level data on a wide range of topics through a broader Culture of Health lens. You can view data through maps, bar charts, trends, and tables. It's easy to explore within your state as well as compare across states and over time.
