Wellness - Healthiest County
by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (UWPHI)
A new report released on March 20, 2013 examines the health and well-being of people living in nearly every county in the United States, and finds that rates of premature deaths are at the lowest level in 20 years. Nevertheless, people in the unhealthiest counties are dying too early at more than twice the rates of those in the healthiest counties.
The 2013 County Health Rankings report relies on a robust set of data and analysis that allows counties to see what it is that is making residents sick or healthy, and how they compare to other counties in the same state. This is the fourth year of the Rankings, published online.
