Healthy Places Index

The Utah Healthy Places Index (HPI) is a powerful and easy-to-use data and policy platform created to advance health equity through open and accessible data. It's an evidence-based and peer-reviewed tool that can help support efforts to prioritize equitable community investments, develop critical programs and policies across the state, and much more. Neighborhood-by-neighborhood, the Utah HPI maps data on social conditions that drive health — like education, job opportunities, clean air, and other indicators that are positively associated with life expectancy at birth.
