Report Shows Marin to be Healthiest County, Allows Comparison of Counties
Jokes aside, this is a big time accomplishment, as the annual ranking published by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute take a lot into consideration.
30 different factors sorted into 6 categories before giving the overall ranking. And Marin ranks among the top on all but one.
Length of Life, number one. Quality of life, number three. Health Behaviors, number three. Clinical Care, number one. Social and Economic Factors, number two.
The one hiccup? Physical environment where they ranked 13th. Still better than ~75% of the state.
So how to do compare your county to Marin? Or maybe that neighbor county that you like to have one up on?
Head over here, and see how it goes.
