To get its numbers, the group looked at three main areas:
Access to healthcare, measured by the percentage of adults who had healthcare coverage, annual dental visits, and a personal doctor.
Rates of immunizations among children, teens, and adults.
Access to chronic-disease-prevention methods, measured by the percentage of adults who had their cholesterol checked, had a colorectal cancer screening, or were told they had high blood pressure.
The data for the report was gathered from government reports including Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System reports, the 2014 National Immunization Survey, and other published studies.
