Trust for America's Health (TFAH)  has released an updated version of Special Analysis: How Healthy Is Your Congressional District? The report is a one-year snapshot of seven preventive health measures for each Congressional District and for each state and the District of Columbia. Although it is not longitudinal, it uses data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) 2015 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS). Several descriptive charts and maps are available, including a listing of the range of healthiest to least healthy Congressional districts. This report provides an opportunity for policymakers and advocates to work alongside each other to cultivate a culture of health.
