America’s Health Rankings 2023 Annual Report

The 2023 Annual Report from America’s Health Rankings, released in collaboration with the American Public Health Association, is dedicated to informing and catalyzing actions that promote healthier communities across the United States. The overarching goal of the America’s Health Rankings Annual Report is to improve population health by presenting a holistic perspective of health, establishing state-level benchmarks, highlighting disparities, and prompting action. The report highlights the rise in chronic conditions, alongside disparities across geographical regions and nearly every demographic group.

This year’s report, based on 87 health metrics categorized into five domains, draws data from 28 distinct sources. Additionally, it offers a comparative analysis of the health status of the United States with that of other Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, in three metrics: infant mortality, life expectancy and total health spending.

Hawaiʻi was ranked 6th nationally for overall health in 2023 due to low prevalence of frequent mental distress, low rates of multiple chronic conditions, and low prevalence of avoiding care due to cost. Nevertheless, the report identified some prominent challenges in Hawaiʻi including: high economic hardship index score, low volunteerism rate, high prevalence of insufficient sleep. 

  • From 2018 to 2022, Hawaii saw a 29% increase in mental health providers increasing from 240 to 310 providers per 100,000 people. 
  • There was a 50% increase in diabetes prevalence, increasing from 7.8 in 2012 to 11.7% in 2022. 
  • The cost of housing increased 12% in 1 year from 41.4% in 2021 to 46.3% in 2022.
