The healthiest county in each US state | 2020

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute in Madison released their 2020 County Health Rankings March 18.

For the rankings, the organizations use county-level data to rank the health of nearly all U.S. counties within states. Researchers use more than 30 measures across four areas — health behaviors, clinical care, physical environment, and social and environmental factors — to develop the rankings.

Below is a list of the county with the best health outcomes in each state. Access state-specific data here. To see a list of the unhealthiest county in each state, click here.
