"There's definitely a strong correlation between economic opportunity and health, and across the state you'll see that", said Justin Rivas, a community coach with the Population Health Institute.

Hillsborough and Pinellas counties ranked in the upper-middle percentile at 25 and 26, respectively. Olmsted County came in at #14, Freeborn County is #34, and Mower County is ranked the 56th healthiest county in Minnesota. The order changes when it comes to health factors: Collin, No. 1, Rockwall, No. 2 and Denton, No. 6.

Milwaukee County's neighboring counties are among the state's healthiest, according to the report.

Elsewhere in the region, Chesterfield County ranked 30th, Henrico County 33rd and Hanover County 16th.

"The health department, our hospitals and many community partners are working together to raise awareness about clinical access to care and the social determinants of health that contribute to health outcomes", Hunter said.

"I bet the other counties did worse and that is why we improved because in some factors we improved and some we were actually worse", McMahan said.

Just like we get yearly check-ups, an annual report released Monday morning provided a "health snapshot" of almost every county in the U.S.

Leon County residents reported having experienced four "poor mental health days" within the previous month of the survey.

In addition to rich community partnerships, Buncombe County also has a wealth of healthcare partners who are invested in caring for the whole person, helping to offset factors that may be making them less healthy.

University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute Director Julie Willems Van Dijk says socio-economic factors are taken into account.

But, she credits most of the county's public health work to its association with a regional group, the Statewide Health Improvement Partnership.

For the 2018 Rankings, Broome County improved its Length of Life ranking to 52 out of 62 counties.

Your zip code could be an indicator to your overall health.

Allen County's quality of life has consistently been ranked in the 50s the last few years.

The goal of the ranking project is to give communities a look into their own health, which could provide opportunities for improvement.
