    Healthiest/Least Healthy Counties in Iowa

    Delaware County in northeast Iowa has the state's healthiest residents, while those living in Appanoose County are the least healthy, a new study is reporting today.

    The report by the University of Wisconsin's Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation documents a significant health disparity between some Iowa counties. The state's most healthy counties are generally clustered in northeast Iowa, while the least healthy are primarily in southern Iowa, historically home to many of the state's poorest residents.
    The differences between Iowa's healthiest and least healthy counties are stark:

    Re: Healthiest/Least Healthy Counties in Iowa

    Guthrie County recently gave by a $300k grant back to Iowa b/c they didnt want to help maintain a bike trail connecting Coon Rapids, the Whiterock Conservancy, Bayard & Bagley to the Raccoon River Valley Trail (the one that runs from WDM to Jefferson)..

    Guthrie County is #65, so they are fat & stupid...

    No need to call names. Unless you're talking about just the north part of Guthrie County.

    I always knew we should get rid of the 2 rows of counties next to Missouri, and we can throw in the counties that touch Nebraska, as well.

    Pretty strong correlation between education and income level to the most healthy counties. Not surprised to see my old Western Iowa stomping grounds ranked pretty low.

    Yes, Story County should be highly ranked due to the clean water system they continue to have up there in Ames. (highest population in story county too I presume.)

    Wasn't Ames ranked in the top 5 places in the world for cleanest water system?
