Minnesota statewide health assessment
The 2017 Minnesota statewide health assessment (PDF) gives us a picture of health and well-being across the state of Minnesota and within our communities. It answers these questions:
- Who is healthy? Who is not?
- What conditions shape health for different populations in Minnesota?
- What do we have—and what do we need—to assure that all people in Minnesota can enjoy healthy lives and healthy communities?
This assessment is the result of a collaboration led by the Healthy Minnesota Partnership and supported by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). Community members, partners, and public health staff from around the state helped develop the assessment by answering surveys, participating in webinars, attending meetings, and by reviewing and providing input on a draft report in the summer of 2017. In response to the assessment’s findings, the Healthy Minnesota Partnership and MDH prepared a statewide health improvement framework.
