County Health Rankings is a national project of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.  The County Health Rankings provide comparative data on a defined set of community health indicators for each city and county in the nation, with each locality ranked against others within its state.  The County Health Rankings are very helpful for starting community conversations about health improvement.  For a variety of technical reasons the County Health Rankings have limited value for designing data-driven community strategies.

The following visualization by Community Health Solutions shows the comparative County Health Rankings for all Virginia localities.  The purpose of this visualization is to provide a quick view of the rankings for any city or county of interest.  More details on the County Health Rankings are available from the national website.
