The annual 2022 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps (CHR&R) has been released, complete with new measures, evidence-informed strategies and guidance on achieving a just recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic with economic security and health for all.
The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute created CHR&R for communities across the nation, with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
This year, they focused on the importance of pursuing economic security for everyone and all communities. The pandemic both revealed and worsened the burdens and barriers that women, people of color, and people with low incomes face. It also underscored that resources have not been distributed fairly within and across communities.
- The National Findings Report explores topics key to advancing a just recovery for economic security and health, including a living wage, equitable pay, childcare affordability and availability, and equitable school funding.
- Addition of seven new measures to support local data-to-action related to income, education, family and social support, and health outcomes.
