NEPHTC is happy to share the new Sharecare Community Well-Being Index state rankings report. This study was conducted by the BU Biostatistics and Epidemiology Data Analytics Center and the digital health company Sharecare. Massachusetts has ranked the #1 healthiest state in the nation for the second year in a row. More details about how researchers conducted the study:
As in previous years, the newly released research assessed the well-being of nearly 500,000 Americans spanning all 50 states in 2021 across individual well-being domains, including physical, social, community, purpose, and financial; and also analyzed more than 600 elements of social determinants of health (SDOH) to identify those data most associated with community health outcomes – healthcare access, food access, resource access, housing and transportation, and economic security.
