The 2012 County Health Rankings report, the third annual, is out today and measures each of the 3,005 counties in the U.S.  The report, which draws on data from the CDC, the Dartmouth Health Atlas, the U.S. Census Bureau and other sources, is user-friendly and free.  The project, is a collaboration of the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.  Their aim is to help local leaders and residents see not only where they rank on factors that determine health, but also specific ways to improve.  So how healthy is your county?
