Recently, we did an article on the healthiest counties in Texas, so now we thought we would cover the opposite end of that spectrum: the unhealthiest counties in our state. No offense to these counties, of course; we’re just going by the statistics we have found on the CountyHealthRankings website. The factors for the data include number of premature or accidental deaths, pollution, smoking and drinking habits, access to good healthcare and healthy food, etc. Without further ado, here are the 15 unhealthiest counties in Texas.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Did this list surprise you? What counties would you have expected on the list that didn’t show up here? Let us know in the comments!
