CARES, in partnership with Well-Being in the Nation (WIN), reconstructed and provided data updates to winmeasures.org in early 2023. The refreshed site aims to, “bring you data on the WIN Core Measures and Leading Indicators.” WIN Core Measures focus on three main areas: Well-being of People, Well-being of Places, and Equity. Leading Indicators are searchable at the national, state, county, and city level (where available) and encompass a core set of equity-focused social determinants. Learn more about the WIN Measures health equity framework and how it can be applied across sectors and initiatives.
