Indiana Health Dashboard

This dashboard enables users to compare Indiana values to U.S. values and various goals (such as the Indiana State Health Improvement Plan and Healthy People 2020).

Click on a category below to view its indicators. A gauge ranging from "bad" to "good" values helps one visualize how well Indiana is doing. Some indicators don’t have comparisons, because either there is no available U.S. data or no goals have been developed.
