SHADAC invites you to explore State Health Compare, a new, user-friendly online tool for obtaining and comparing state-level estimates related to health and health care.
State Health Compare combines estimates previously available separately through the SHADAC Data Center and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) Data Hub. The new, merged tool brings together estimates on a wide range of health-related topics in an effort to allow analysts and policymakers to view state-level data through a broad Culture of Health lens.
Topics for which estimates are available through State Health Compare include: health insurance coverage, cost of care, health behaviors, health outcomes, access to and utilization of care, care quality, public health, and socioeconomic indicators.
Users can explore these topics within and across states and look at trends over time and by characteristics such as age, race/ethnicity, etc., through user-generated maps, bar charts, trend lines, and tables. Graphics are easily downloadable, and the underlying data can be exported.
Attend a Virtual Tour of State Health Compare on May 23rd
SHADAC will provide a virtual tour of State Health Compare during a webinar on Tuesday, May 23rd, at 12:00 p.m. Central. SHADAC Senior Research Fellow Joanna Turner will lead the tour and answer questions from attendees. Ms. Turner will be joined by Carolyn Miller, Senior Program Officer at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and by SHADAC Director Lynn Blewett.
