With this interactive map, you can explore health trends in the United States at the county level for both sexes in alcohol, smoking prevalence, life expectancy, hypertension, obesity, physical activity, and poverty.
Our data visualizations allow you to see patterns and follow trends that are not readily apparent in the numbers themselves. Here you can watch how trends in mortality change over time, choose countries to compare progress in a variety of health areas, or see how countries compare against each other on a global map.
IHME’s policy reports help put our innovative research into action by translating scientific findings in order to understand specific policy implications. IHME produces an annual report on the financing of global health and also publishes special focus reports annually.
IHME researchers produce numerous scientific, peer-reviewed research articles each year across our four research areas: Measuring Health, Tracking Performance, Maximizing Impact, and Innovative Measurement Systems. Each research study undergoes rigorous internal and external review prior to publication in leading scientific and academic journals.
