These 10 Counties Have The Healthiest People In All Of West Virginia

There’s an old saying that goes “without your health, you have nothing,” and it’s true. You can have everything you ever wanted, but without health, you can’t really enjoy anything.

When it comes to being healthy, people in some places in West Virginia are doing better than others. That’s according to a program that annually ranks every county in the country according to various health factors.

County Health Rankings and Roadmaps take into account length of life, birth weights, obesity and smoking rates, physical activity, DUI deaths, unemployment and the number of children living in poverty, among many other factors. You can find the full results here.

Here are the 10 healthiest counties according to the rankings.
