Under the background of new urbanization and rapid economic development, all countries are facing the challenge of public health security and actively develop public health. At present, public health is faced with a variety of biological threats that threaten public health on a large scale, inefficient and chaotic health governance, and unreasonable political, economic and wealth order, which aggravate the health dilemma. In order to promote and improve the development of public health, this paper analyzes their contribution to the development of public health from the perspective of the new urbanization process and economic development, and analyzes the role of many sub-factors in the development of public health. This paper proposes a method of factor analysis to consider the contribution of urbanization and economic development, and analyzes the importance of each part of public health. The results showed that urbanization process and economic development were positively correlated with public health. Government intervention, the level of market process, population density and the degree of industrialization play a crucial role in the development of public health. The factor analysis shows that disease prevention and control play an important role in the evaluation of public health and is an effective method to consider the contribution of urbanization and economic development to public health.
