Humboldt County

General Health

In Humboldt County, 88% of residents report having good, very good, or excellent health, which is higher than the 84% of residents in California overall who report the same and ranks 11th in terms of quality of life.1 Among residents, 80.5% have some form of public or private health insurance.2 The percentage of those with insurance is expected to increase due to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act/Covered California, and future reports should tell us more about its impact.  Read More
