San Mateo County 2nd Healthiest County in California
Being in the second place out of 58 counties is good news to celebrate! Yet, much work remains to address health inequities. In this same ranking, San Mateo County ranked 26th in the physical environment measurement that takes into account water and air quality and housing and transportation burden. Also, the County Health Rankings report does not disaggregate data by race, income, education attainment, or place. And we know that our local disaggregated data indicate differences in health outcomes by all of these factors.
