The financial website 247WallStreet.com set out to find the answer late last year, analyzing county-specific data compiled from a joint project of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
Based on its analysis, America’s 25 healthiest places for seniors seem to be found along its perimeter – counties out west, in Florida, and in New England are conspicuous in the ranking. The #1 pick: San Juan County, Washington, noted for its low obesity and smoking rates and high physical activity rate. Beaufort County, South Carolina finished second, with its preventive care rates ranking high. Similar factors elevated Jefferson County, Washington to the third-highest ranking. The analysis looked at myriad factors, from physicians per capita to percentage of seniors reporting themselves physically active and receiving preventive medical care to rates of diabetes diagnoses.2
