Health Indicators by State + 500 Cities Data Project

How Healthy is Your State?

Use the data tool from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) below to see state data related to several health outcomes and health behaviors. Use the drop-down menus to select the state and then look at the rates of cholesterol, diabetes, heart attacks, high blood pressure, nutrition, obesity, physical activity, stroke, and tobacco use. The data tool pulls data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) data for years 2011 to 2014 for all 50 states in the United States and Washington, D.C.

**As of April 30, 2018 this How Healthy is Your State data tool appears to be down and not functional — not just on this website but on the CDC’s website too. Possibly because they’re updating it with more recent BRFSS data, but that is not known for sure.****Hope to have it back up soon!
