We recently did an article on the healthiest counties in Oklahoma, so today we wanted to flip it around and take a look at the unhealthiest counties in the state. Again, we gathered our data from County Health Rankings & Roadmaps to find out how Oklahoma counties ranked among each other. The factors they used to determine the rankings were overall rank, length of life and quality of life. Here are the 10 lowest ranked counties in Oklahoma for overall health…along with the number of premature deaths and percentage of adults considered in poor or fair health.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
