The Health Policy Institute of Ohio (HPIO) launched a new resource page on the link between income and health.
More than a century of research has found strong connections between income and health. As a group, people with higher incomes live longer lives and experience better physical and mental health outcomes. Understanding how income influences health can inform policies, programs, and resource allocation to improve the health and economic wellbeing of Ohioans.
In 2017, HPIO hosted an educational forum, Linking Health and Wealth: How Economic Vitality Can Lead to Healthier Ohioans, and released a policy brief on the topic, Connections between Income and Health.
This page provides links to resources that were referenced during the forum and in the brief, as well as additional data and information on income and health.
