ZANESVILLE, Ohio- The annual County Health Rankings list has been released and Muskingum County didn't fare too well.

The report found that the five healthiest localities in the state were: Loudoun County, Arlington County, Fairfax County, Falls Church and Poquoson. South Florida counties Palm Beach and Broward both finished in the top 10.

The Zanesville-Muskingum County Public Health Department said the county ranked 67 out of 88 counties in Ohio.

The report shows that the rate of sexually transmitted infections (using chlamydia infections as a marker) is on the rise in Sonoma County, going from 332.3 chlamydia cases per 100,000 in 2014 to 376 cases in 2015, the most recent year for which such data is available. "Kansas and Wyandotte County are no different there". Republic is in north central Kansas, Morton is in the southwest corner, and Labette and Woodson are in the southeast corner.

In southern Minnesota, Blue Earth County ranked similarly to Watonwan, Faribault and Martin counties, with all ranked in the bottom half of counties for length and quality of life.

The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute advances health and well-being for all by developing and evaluating interventions and promoting evidence-based approaches to policy and practice at the local, state, and national levels.

Youngsters living in poverty and teen births are also examined.

Oakman also says that the childhood poverty rate is a major factor in Washington County's ranking; there, the rate is 28 percent. It's unclear from the data why the county declined in rank, because numerous health outcome measures changed little.

This is just a snapshot of the overall health of our counties. "We are taking action".

Last year, Petersburg was ranked second worst in the state.

For example, the data show that 46 percent of black children in Wyandotte County live in poverty, compared with 40 percent of Hispanic children and 17 percent of white children. The project includes maps on its websites that lets users compare counties for each measure.

"I knew Broome County could do better".

David Plyler, the chairman of the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners, said the county could remain at its current ranking in the short term because "instant success is not always prevalent".

It's time for a check up on the health of West Michigan. "By focusing on the unique needs of our area, we are starting to see meaningful change".

Statewide, the new report says 15 percent of Iowa children live in poverty.

Nationwide, the report said, racial differences in birth weight are greater than county differences in birth weight.
