Health is largely determined by social, economic, behavioral, and environmental factors, all of which affect health outcomes. These factors, known as social determinants of health, can serve as a barometer for regional wellness and quality of life.
21 social determinants of health were selected, as part of the Healthy NC 2030 initiative, to be a public health focus for the state's next decade. This overview radar chart explores how Graham County is doing in comparison to the rest of the state for all indicators. Indicators closer to the circle's center are more of a challenge in this region, while indicators closer to the edge of the circle are regional strengths.
