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.
State Health Compare contains more than 45 measures on a range of topics including health insurance coverage; cost of care; health behaviors; health outcomes; access to and utilization of care; care quality; public health; and social and economic determinants of health. These measures come from 18 data sources and are available for timespans ranging from 4 to 18 years. See a full breakdown of measures, data sources, and data years available.
