Resources and tools to advance health equity.

Data are a powerful tool for helping policymakers, advocates, journalists, and others better understand and respond to the drivers of health inequities, identify priorities, and drive action.

Data provides evidence highlighting inequitable gaps in community conditions that allow people to reach their best health—such as stable and affordable homes, jobs, clean air, parks, and other conditions that shape health.

RWJF supports multiple efforts to provide community leaders and residents with local health data, as well as data about the drivers of health at the state, county, city, and census tract levels. These data resources allow communities to uncover health challenges, better target resources, and measure progress toward ensuring that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to achieve their best health.
