Health & Family
Virginia's goal is to inspire and support Virginians toward healthy lives and strong and resilient families.
- The rate of teen pregnancy is declining in Virginia.
- Obesity among Virginians is increasing.
- Virginia's rate of infant mortality is higher than the national average.
- More than one million Virginians lack health insurance.
The health and family indicators help to assess the progress we are making, understand the key elements that influence the indicators, and clarify the role the Commonwealth is taking to ensure that Virginians enjoy a high quality of life.
