Florida Ranks 35th in the Nation for Women’s Health & Well-Being
New report shows wide disparities by race and ethnicity for chronic health issues such as diabetes and AIDS
A new county-level analysis of the health status of women in Florida, released by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research (IWPR) in partnership with the Florida Women’s Funding Alliance (FWFA), finds that women in Florida have higher rates of AIDS and diabetes, slightly more days per month of poor mental health, and lower access to health insurance coverage than women in the United States overall. The report recommends policies that could address health disparities for women of color, increase the supply of quality mental healthcare providers, and support those with health issues and their caregivers through paid family and medical leave and paid sick days.
Florida overall received a C- on IWPR’s Health & Well-Being Composite Index—composed of nine health indicators that provide a basis for ranking and grading each state in the nation—but the report finds wide disparities in women’s status by county and by race and ethnicity.
Women have made progress over the past several decades; there are, however, significant areas for improvement for women in Florida. Since the publication of the Institute for Women’s Policy Research’s 2004 report The Status of Women in the States, Florida’s grade for women’s employment and earnings has worsened from a C- to a D+. The Status of Women in Florida by County: Employment & Earnings examines data on women’s employment, earnings and occupations and trends over time, including research and analysis necessary to make data-driven decisions.
