Every year the United Health Foundation releases its “America’s Health Rankings Report”, which ranks each and every US state from least healthy to healthiest. The rankings are determined based off the prevalence in each state of four key health issues: obesity, smoking, diabetes, and physical inactivity.

Some of the healthiest states might surprise you, and some of the least healthy states might surprise you as well! Let’s see how your state stacks up, shall we?
