A new report says several northeastern and central Indiana counties, including Tipton and Carroll, are among the healthiest in the state, while some of the least healthy are found in rural southern Indiana.
Howard, Cass and Clinton counties were listed among the bottom half of Indiana.
The Indiana State Department of Health says the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation released the report Wednesday ranking the health of Indiana’s 92 counties. The report used a formula to measure how healthy people are and how long they live.
The report says the 10 healthiest counties in Indiana are Hamilton, Dubois, Boone, LaGrange, Hendricks, Warrick, DeKalb, Wells, Whitley and Marshall.
The county with the poorest health outcomes was Scott, followed by Starke, Pike, Switzerland, Fayette, Sullivan, Martin, Jennings, Lake and Jay.
