Interactive: Explore Health in Your County and Community Type

by American Communities Project October 04, 2018

Your community is more than your home; it defines your life, from job opportunities and consumer choices, to the quality of education, to air quality and exercise options. And just a few miles can make a dramatic difference.

The chart below is interactive. You can choose the indicator you want to explore, from uninsured rates to premature death, by scrolling through the  options in the box in the top left. The black line within each type represents its median value. You can also search for any county in the country by entering its name in the “Find a County” box.  The chart shows not only the differences in the community type medians but also how communities are clustered in some types and spread across the line in others.
