Delaware County Ranked Ohio’s Healthiest
Delaware County is once again Ohio’s healthiest county to live in.
That’s according to the latest annual rankings from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute released Wednesday.
They include longevity, infant mortality rates, access to health care, and smoking rates.
Residents in northern Ohio’s Geauga county are the healthiest overall, and southern Ohio’s Scioto County fared the worst in the health rankings.
Geauga was followed by Putnam County in northwest Ohio and Delaware County.
Scioto was named the least healthy, followed by Lawrence and Adams, also in southern Ohio.
Heavily weighted in the survey are social and economic factors because of their impact on health and access to care. Those components include education, unemployment and income.
