The annual 2022 County Health Rankings have been released 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. For more than a decade, County Health Rankings & Roadmaps' (CHR&R) actionable data, evidence, guidance, and stories have broadened the nation’s understanding of the wide range of factors – education, income, housing, and more – that shape health. The pandemic revealed and worsened existing barriers to health and well-being such as racism, discrimination, and disinvestment. This year's release focuses on a recovery that builds toward a healthier, just, and more inclusive future.
