Resource: 2017 Minnesota Statewide Health Assessment


The Minnesota Department of Health collaborated with Healthy Minnesota Partnership to release the 2017 Minnesota Statewide Health Assessment . This report provides an overview of the health and well-being of citizens and communities in Minnesota. The assessment aims to look beyond averages and delve deeper into the injustices that occur at the individual, neighborhood, and community levels.

Community members, partners, and public health officials from the entire state participated in the creation and response of surveys. The information should be used to inform individuals, from those in community organizations to state legislators.

In response to this assessment, a statewide framework for action is anticipated to be released in 2018.

The 2017 Minnesota Statewide Health Assessment was funded with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Office for State, Tribal, Local, and Territorial Support, under Federal Award Identification Number (FAIN) NB01OT009130.
