This study examines social health determinants that impact health outcomes for residents in Louisiana, USA. We analyze data from 2010 to 2019 County Health Rankings using the behavioral and environmental factors from the precede-proceed model framework to assess factors to consider when thinking of interventions. Results suggest that the health determinants analyzed have a great variation in the length of life and the quality of life, central domains of health outcome. This understanding of what affects population health provides valuable information to establish public health priorities and to efficiently use limited health resources. The study calls for effective training, policies and programs to raise awareness and design approaches that will potentially increase health outcomes in the state.
