Your zip code could be an indicator to your overall health.

Milwaukee County had 1,010 newly diagnosed chlamydia cases per 100,000 people, compared to the state average of 424, according to the report.

"Access to a primary care provider is an issue that affects many other aspects of health", Matthews said.

The goal of the rankings project is to give communities a window into their own health and provide opportunities for improvement. It ranks each county within a state but does not make state-by-state comparisons. Union County, with a population of about 15,000, was ranked the 67th or lowest county in the state.

Just like we get yearly check-ups. Consider that Watauga County ranks No. 8 in health outcomes, but has a median income of less than $40,000, a figure more closely associated with counties that ranked in the bottom half of the RWJF list.

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".

Lake County ranked dead last in the survey of 57 counties, down one spot from previous year.

The CHD has also established the Crater Healthy Corner Store Initiative to help create easy access points for fresh fruits and vegetables in community settings with the least amount of access.

"Years went by before the high infant mortality rate in Forsyth County saw dramatic improvement", Plyler said.

The study also ranks Boone County ninth out of 115 counties in Missouri in health outcomes and third for health factors.

North Carolina has more children living in poverty, fewer people with health insurance and more teen births than the national averages.

The report includes health, social and economic factors, along with clinical care and health environment.

Nationwide, the report said, racial differences in birth weight are greater than county differences in birth weight. Jones said as things continue to improve the ranking should improve as well.

"The Mental Health Council of the Big Bend is working closely with the Florida Department of Health in Leon County to identify areas of need and strategize solutions", Jay Reeve, PhD, chair of the Mental Health Council of the Big Bend and CEO of the Apalachee Center, said.
