Variation and disparities between urban and rural environments have been well documented both nationally as well as in the State of Wisconsin. Additionally, an older and aging population in rural Wisconsin presents the need for unique and additional health services.

Due to these differences and vulnerabilities, it is essential to examine and monitor Wisconsin’s rural health and communicate this underpinning information to public health practitioners, legislators, and researchers in the field so they may be better informed on future policy and research endeavors.

The Wisconsin Rural Health Status Dashboard is an effort to accomplish precisely this feat. The dashboard consists of compiled health data from a variety of sources to specifically assess and annually track the health status of rural Wisconsin.
