Compare by Region: 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.

Disparate burdens of certain risks and conditions depend on certain race and ethnicity. These are commonly referred to as health disparities or health inequities. It is important that communities be aware of where there are unequal burdens of health risks or conditions or unequal access to services in that way communities can focus interventions to better meet the needs of these people. In particular, understanding the health and well-being needs of and culturally proficient ways to assess, plan, and implement community solutions for these health needs.
