2019 County Health Rankings Key Findings Report 


A Robert Wood Johnson Foundation program and University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute released a new report, 2019 County Health Rankings (CHR&R), to analyze how the quality of our geographical residence affects healthy living. This report summarizes key findings on how housing cost burden is a barrier to health equity and disproportionately impacts the low-income communities.  

By using specific local data resources, evidence-based strategies, and examples of other community practices to close gaps in opportunity, this report is a call to action for policymakers, community leaders and residents to implement systemic changes that will create more secure and affordable housing opportunities for everyone.
