How healthy is your county?

(FOX19) -

A study released March 26th shows how healthy counties are in the United States.

On Tuesday's FOX19 Morning News, our guest will help us dissect the rankings for local counties.

The 2014 "County Health Rankings" is a project of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.

"After five years of the Rankings, we continue to see significant gaps between the least healthy and healthiest counties. The Rankings show us that people living in the least healthy counties have twice the premature death rates than those living in the healthiest counties," the report's website says. "There are also twice as many children living in poverty and teen births in the least healthy counties as in the healthiest counties.

Here's how local counties were ranked overall for health outcomes:

Ohio:

Butler: 36th

Clermont: 35th

Hamilton:64th

Warren: seventh

Kentucky:

Boone: second

Campbell: 22nd

Kenton: 19th

Gallatin: 95th

Grant: 58th

Pendleton: 92nd

Owen: 20th

Bracken: 55th

Robertson: 86th

Mason: 31st

Indiana:

Dearborn: 28th

Franklin: 23rd

Ripley: 29th

Ohio: 43rd

Switzerland: 70th

Union: 38th
