Health Resources Comparison Tool

The Health Resources Comparison Tools (HRCT) enable local health planners, administrators and researchers to compare health status indicators and available health resources for their state and county (or county equivalents) to states or similar counties nationwide.

Similar counties can be defined by the user based on several characteristics: population size, density, age distribution, mortality, percent minority, percent below poverty, and education. The tool permits users to select among these variables to identify similar counties and also lets the user define data ranges to include more or fewer counties. The ability to directly compare similar counties may assist analysts and health planners in identifying resources lacking in their community which are need to address health problems.
