Let’s face it, Mississippi isn’t exactly known for being among the nation’s healthiest states. In fact, it’s the opposite.

For County Health Rankings & Roadmaps’ complete report, (which considered things such as length of life, quality of life, health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, and physical environment), click here.
