New report card on state rankings in women’s health

The Alliance for a Just Society recently released the 2014 Women’s Health Report Card that rates the 50 U.S. states on issues related to health coverage, access to care, and health outcomes.   The Alliance is a group of 14 racial and economic justice organizations around the U.S.    This report uses different methodology than early reports entitled “Making the Grade on Women’s Health” published in 2000, 2004 and 2007 and 2010 by the National Women’s Law Center and the Oregon Health and Science University.

Just two states, Massachusetts and Connecticut, received A’s in all three categories.   Twelve states received D or F in all three categories.   Our WHRI home state of Illinois received an overall B rating.  The entire report is available from the Alliance website.   To just view the table chart for all fifty states, click Here.
