2019 Alabama County Health rankings

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's

2019 County Health Rankings


Released March 19, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's 2019 County Health Rankings report found 11 percent of U.S. households spend more than half their income on housing costs. Secure, affordable housing plays a major role in health outcomes, according to the findings.


An increase in severe housing cost burden was also associated with

  • Food insecurity

  • Child poverty

  • Fair or poor health


The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation rankings use state and national data to compare U.S. counties on more than 30 measures across four areas:

  • Health behaviors

  • Clinical care

  • Physical environment

  • Social and environmental factors


Measures include access to care, income, and alcohol or drug use.


The healthiest county in Alabama was Shelby and the unhealthiest was Lowndes.
