The Health Of Some Counties

Things are somewhat healthy, and somewhat unhealthy.

So are the findings in a report released Wednesday about Indiana's 92 counties. It was produced by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin's Population Health Institute.

The rankings are based on behavior, access to health care, economics and environment.

I live near four counties. Here are their rankings:

  • Hamilton, 1st.
  • Hancock, 22nd.
  • Madison, 79th.
  • Marion, 80th.
The worst is Scott County.
