It’s no secret. I love it when data is visually appealing. It is more captivating. At least it is to me.
America’s Health Rankings is a super neat site allowing you to view 42 diverse health measures by state. States are numbered from 1st (best state) to 50th (worst state) for any selected measure. The 3-D map is lovely, and you can watch the rankings change over the past 20 years via the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the screen. You can even export the 3-D results to a PDF or to Twitter and Facebook. If needed, you can also compare rankings of two states.
