Arizona ranks nearly worst in the nation when it comes to per person spending on public health, according to data compiled by researchers at the University of Minnesota.
Arizona spent approximately $9 per person for state public health funding in 2017, according to a data analysis done by the State Health Access Data Assistance Center, or SHADAC for short.
SHADAC is associated with the University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health.
Nevada and Missouri are the only states that spend less, with Nevada spending $7 per person and Missouri spending $6.
