Maricopa County Health Matters is a one stop source of non-biased data and information about community health in Maricopa County, and healthy communities in general. It is intended to help planners, policy makers, and community members learn about issues, identify improvements, and collaborate for positive change. You can:
Compare Maricopa County's health with other Arizona communities, the nation, and national targets with more than 100 indicators
Take action by getting involved, volunteering, and working together
The colored gauge gives a visual representation of how your community is doing in comparison to other communities. The three-colored dial represents the distribution of values from the reporting regions (e.g. counties in the state) ordered from those doing the best to those doing the worst (sometimes lower values are better and in other cases higher values are better). From that distribution, the green represents the top 50th percentile, the yellow represents the 25th to 50th percentile, and the red represents the "worst" quartile.
This gauge shows how the Maricopa County value compares with the median or mean value for all counties in the state (or all US counties). The gauge is blue and white when being higher (or lower) is not necessarily good or bad and is multi-colored when being higher (or lower) is good or bad.
