    Mitchell County at #8! Represent!

    This really surprises me.

    lol

    I feel pretty good about the counties that I grew up in and currently live in.

    Hancock is 22
    Kossuth is 15
    and Story is 6.

    Not too bad.

    How do they come up with those rankings?

    If you click on a county, it shows you the statistics they're using to measure things.

    Re: County Health Rankings

    I figured Iowa City was dirty enough to drop Johnson county, but Story finished above them so no biggie.

    And yes, I look for every opportunity to finish above Iowa.

    It looks like that it's healthier to have Minnesota for a neighbor - not so healthy to live next to Nebraska or Missouri.
