CountyHealthRankings.org — Where does yours stand (or sit?)

Screen Shot 2011-12-31 at 11.47.23 AM

From the website: "We measure two types of health outcomes to represent how healthy each county is: how long people live (mortality) and how healthy people feel (morbidity). These outcomes are the result of a collection of health factors and are influenced by programs and policies at the local, state, and federal levels."

You can see me up top if you have really good vision: I'm in AL (Albemarle) county, about a mile and a half west of the CV (Charlottesville) blip in the center.

I lived in Chesterfield Co. for many years. I wonder if I can credit my good health now with that? Nah.
