Data Points


2024 Health Value Dashboard

  • Ohio ranks 44 on health value out of 50 states and D.C. This means that Ohioans are living less healthy lives and spending more on health care than people in most other states.
  • Ohio ranks 43 on population health and 34 on healthcare spending.
  • Adult depression increased from 18% in 2011 to 25% in 2022, and in 2018-2019, one in every four Ohio adults who needed mental health treatment did not receive it
  • In 2021, 20% Ohio high school students reported using an electronic vapor product at least once in the past 30 days. High rates of tobacco use continue for Ohioans into adulthood; Ohio ranks 46th on adult smoking.
  • In 2021, nearly one in five Ohioans — over 2,159,000 people — lived in families with high out-of-pocket healthcare spending, paying more than 10% of their annual household income for health care.
  • Ohioans of color were more likely to experience exposure to air pollutants (based on a national scale of 1 to 100) than white Ohioans in 2020. 
  • Ohioans continue to die from COVID-19 at a higher rate than people in most other states, as shown below. Ohio’s rank worsened considerably from 29 to 42 in this edition of the Dashboard.

If disparities were eliminated: 

  • 189,344 fewer Black Ohioans would experience racism when seeking healthcare
  • 37,695 fewer Hispanic Ohioans would be unable to see a doctor due to cost
  • 6,051 fewer Asian children would experience unfair treatment due to racism
  • 623,070 fewer Ohioans with disabilities would be out of the labor force
  • 266,555 fewer Ohioans with low incomes would have poor oral health
