Ottawa County ranked healthiest county in MI again

Wergin noted of the rankings, "Healthiest Manitowoc County uses the annual information used by the County Health Rankings to watch Manitowoc County's health status from year to year, to identify what we can do to improve the health of Manitowoc County and where we are falling short".

Accidental drug overdose, homicides and motor vehicle crashes appear to be huge factors in these deaths.

Ottawa County ranked first in the Health Outcomes category while Washtenaw was ranked first in the Health Factors category. "When people know better, they do better". Los Alamos County has the lowest rate of 3,300 years lost.

Monroe County Health Department Administrator John Wagner could not immediately be reached for comment.

The 2016 rankings by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin show a striking gap in the rate of premature death between the healthiest and least healthy areas of the state. Lee said the coach meets via virtual conference with members of the coalition's executive board for 90 minutes once a month.

"The score that concerned me the most was the health behaviors,"she said, which was 38th in the state".

The findings were not surprising to public health officials in Baltimore who have sought for years to reduce disparities not only between the city and surrounding counties but between well off and disadvantaged neighborhoods within the city. Partridge said the statistics, while not offering all the answers, prove that "place does matter" in determining one's health.

The rankings look at four main areas of health: health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors and physical environment.

Other risk factors for the county include a lack of physical activity, a rise in violent crime and a high rate of sexually transmitted infections - Black Hawk is the second-worst county in the state in newly diagnosed chlamydia cases per 100,000 people. Berkshire County was 12th, Franklin County was 10th, and Hampshire County was 5th.

In a number of states, the least healthy county also overlaps at least one Native American reservation, where poor economic conditions, unhealthy behaviors, and the resulting negative health outcomes are far more common than elsewhere.

The rankings are meant to show where a community can make improvements or build on strengths. The number of Kansas counties participating rose to 102 this year compared to 101 last year. "They are a great start but there's still a lot of work to be done", he said.

"It's just another thing for us to brag about". "But the health department alone can't do that".

The study this year took a closer look at premature death trends from 1997 to 2014.

But, according to the report, a larger segment of Ulster County's population smokes (16 percent compared to 15 percent statewide), and obesity continues to be higher in Ulster County when compared to statewide data (27 percent compared to 25 percent statewide).

Fewer people are dying prematurely in D.C. than in recent years, but the number of premature deaths remains above the national average.
