NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 23: Medical instruments are viewed in the office of Dr. Jim Spears at the Actors Fund's Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic on March 23, 2011 in New York City. Wednesday marks the one year anniversary of President Obama's healthcare law known as the Affordable Care Act. The debate over the bill, which aims to bring affordable healthcare to all Americans, has been emotional as Republican activists have tried to get it repealed. The Al Hirschfeld Free Health Clinic supplies those in the entertainment industry without health coverage with access to doctors and specialists. The clinic has been serving the entertainment community since 2003.

County Health Rankings & Roadmaps recently released their 2023 rankings. The goal of CHR&R is to “bring actionable data, evidence, guidance and stories to support community-led efforts to grow community power and improve health equity.” It is created by The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (UWPHI). For 2023 the rankings focused on “the connection between civic health and thriving people and places.” So how healthy is Charlotte and the surrounding area compared to the rest of the state?

First, we need to know exactly what we are looking at. On the County Health Rankings website, you can filter by a wide range of metrics. Right now we are looking at the rankings based on Health Outcomes. These rankings tell us how long people live on average within a community. As well as how much physical and mental health people experience in a community while they are alive. These rankings are out of the state, so for the counties in the Charlotte Metro Area that are in North Carolina you will see a number/100 for 100 counties. For South Carolina its /46. The only counties to make the top 5 in their respective states were Union and York. But Mecklenburg was right on the edge of that. Some of the surrounding counties didn’t fare as well.
