How healthy is your county?

A new report, released by the University of Wisconsin's Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, ranks the overall health of each county in each of the 50 states. Key factors in the ranking are how healthy people are and how long they live.

They also look at health impacts such as: smoking, obesity, binge drinking, access to primary care providers, rates of high school graduation, rates of violent crime, air pollution levels, liquor store density, unemployment rates and number of children living in poverty.

So now, what you really want to know: healthiest county? San Juan County. The least healthy? Ferry County. See the full results.
