We’ve shown you where the healthiest people in Michigan live. But now it’s time for the flip side and reveal the unhealthiest places. The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute for its study, County Health Rankings and Roadmaps gathered a number of data points to reach its conclusions about the health of residents in counties all over the country, including Michigan. Using that information, we’re providing you with this hopefully useful tool.
Wow, some of these details are quite revealing. Who knew so many of these factors could lead to poor health among an entire population. Tell us though, what’s missing in this data? Can you live a healthy life if you live in one of these counties?
