South Carolina’s 2023 State Health Assessment (SHA) is a comprehensive evaluation of the health status of South Carolinians designed to inform health improvement plans at the state and community levels. In addition, it serves as a health data resource that organizations, the media and the public can use.

Live Healthy South Carolina, a statewide effort between the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Alliance for a Healthier South Carolina (Alliance), is pleased to present South Carolina’s 2023 State Health Assessment (SHA), a comprehensive resource of the latest public health data, issues and trends affecting all South Carolinians.

The SHA is a critical tool for population health agencies and programs, health care practitioners, policy makers, researchers, communities, and other professionals to examine key health indicators, identify health disparities and monitor trends and progress in the field of public health. It builds on extensive data analysis and community engagement and highlights capacity throughout our state, including resources and assets that work collaboratively to improve the health of South Carolina residents.
