The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is out with its annual rankings of the health of New Jersey Counties.

A new study from County Health Rankings reveals the healthiest and not-so healthiest counties in North Carolina.

Near the top of the list, Eaton County is the 16th healthiest county in the state.

The annual health ranking of USA counties comes from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. That's a drop of three positions since 2017 and eight since 2016. Carver County is ranked the healthiest in Minnesota while Mahnomen County has the poorest health. Other counties could have simply done better.

Your zip code can be a good indicator of your health!

People who live in counties ranked among the least healthiest are almost three times more likely to die prematurely than those in the healthiest counties.

Beyonce, Jay-Z announce 'On The Run II' dates
Beyonce will be performing hit singles from her " Lemonade " album, while Jay-Z performs from his album "4:44". Monday, March 19, at all Ticketmaster outlets, including Ticketmaster .com and by calling 800-745-3000.

The rankings are based on factors including smoking, obesity, physical inactivity, access to healthy foods, children in poverty, unemployment, level of education, premature death, low birth weight and air and water quality. This is four spots down from where Muskingum landed on the list a year ago.

The county made that jump with only nine of the 30 measures improving. These regions have seen little change over the last decade, while the East and West Coasts have seen improvements.

"The Rankings allow us to tell the story about our strengths and opportunities for improvement as a state".

Taking third and fourth place are Saline and Faulkner counties. Blacks and Hispanics have the highest rates, 51 and 49, respectively.

In South Carolina, 23 percent of children live in poverty, compared to the USA rate of 20 percent. "The Family Justice Center is a great example of how co-locating services such as medical exams, legal assistance, childcare, and counseling can reduce trauma and speed up the healing process for our clients", says Buncombe County Family Justice Center Coordinator, Julie Klipp Nicholson. All surpass statewide results.

"The Crater Health District is proud to be working with our community to improve health outcomes for all people in our district", said Alton Hart, Jr., MD, MPH, Director, Crater Health District.
