Every Californian should have the opportunity to live a healthy life. The California Healthy Places Index (HPI) is a powerful tool, developed by the Public Health Alliance of Southern California, to assist in exploring local factors that predict life expectancy and comparing community conditions across the state. The HPI provides overall scores and more detailed data on specific policy action areas that shape health, like housing, transportation, education and more. The HPI has been utilized by hundreds of government agencies, health care institutions, community groups and other sectors, and it has been used to allocate more than $1 billion in investments to communities that need it most.
