The Healthiest County In Pennsylvania

Posted: Updated:

The University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation have released their 2013 County Health Rankings study.

This study is a collection of 50 reports, each representing a U.S. State, which ranks the state's counties based on how 'healthy' they are.    Several health factors are taken into account including health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors and physical environment. 

Topping the list in Pennsylvania is Chester County. 

Chester is followed by Union, Cumberland, Centre and Snyder Counties.  On the other end of the health spectrum is Philadelphia, Fayette, Greene, Sullivan and Forest.  These five counties are unhealthiest in the state.
