Overall Health

UnitedHealth Foundation ranks the overall health of states using a composite measure that looks at determinants such as environmental factors, public health policies and environmental factors, insurance coverage, and clinical care. It also looks at outcomes such as mental health, infant mortality, diabetes incidence, and cardiovascular deaths.

In 2018, Minnesota was ranked 7th, down from 4th place ranking in 2016. Binge drinking, low immunization rates for children, and high pertussis incidence continue to present challenges for the State, as has been the case since at least 2016. Strengths highlighted in the report are a low rate of cardiovascular deaths, low uninsurance rate, and low prevalence of frequent mental distress.
