Access to good doctors is one of many factors determining how long and how well we live. She says, though, that there's still room for improvement. These rankings use specific data related to health outcomes and health factors to evaluate community health nationwide.

The data project is a collaboration between the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which started in 2011.

"As usual, it demonstrates we have some serious work to do - we should be in the top ten with the talent and resources we have in Allen County", McMahan said in an email response.

Health outcomes also include quality-of-life indicators such as physical and mental health and babies with low birth weight. "Kansas and Wyandotte County are no different there".

"Until we improve the social and physical environments in which all Georgians live, their income, and their educational achievement, it is unlikely that we can improve their health, " Davis said.

Hardscrabble and sparsely populated Cumberland County ranked at the bottom, as it has in previous reports. Republic is in north central Kansas, Morton is in the southwest corner, and Labette and Woodson are in the southeast corner.

Johns County once again took the No. 1 spot which it has held since 2014.

While population size is important for overall health, demographics and social economic status play a much greater role, according to the health officials. Raquel Bournhonesque, a County Health Rankings public health representative, said counties often move up or down the list relative to how other counties perform. The Health District is working with its governing board, the Southern Nevada Health District Board of Health, and community partners on a number of programs and initiatives that impact areas addressed by the Rankings. "We are taking action". The percentage of driving deaths involving alcohol had been trending downward, from 33 percent in 2014 to 24 percent previous year, but that number rose to 30 percent in the most recent report.

The full state report found that 13 percent of children live in poverty in the state, compared to the 20 percent national average.

McLean County has a 29 percent adult obesity rate which is higher than the state average.

"I knew Broome County could do better".

"This is a big ship to turn and so what it will require is patience, and it will require having a long-term goal", Trujillo says. "By focusing on the unique needs of our area, we are starting to see meaningful change".
