How healthy is your county?

(FOX19) -

A new report from the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has ranked the overall health of nearly every county in all 50 states.

This is the second year of the annual County Health Rankings, which show that where we live, learn, work and play matters to our health.

Every county's ranking is affected by a wide range of factors that influence health — from access to healthy food and opportunities for physical activity, to education and jobs.  

In Kentucky, Boone County was ranked as the healthiest county in the state. Campbell County was 21st and Kenton was 22nd.

In Ohio, Warren County was the region's healthiest county, coming in at 5th in the state. Hamilton County was 67th, Clermont County was 30th and Butler County was 43rd.

In Indiana, Switzerland County was ranked 89th, Ohio County was 33rd, Dearborn was 28th and Ripley was 32nd.
