Health is inextricably linked to where we live. In fact, it’s been said a person’s ZIP code can predict more about a person’s health than their genetic code.

The 2022 Healthiest Communities rankings highlight this important point by analyzing 89 factors that fuel and form the health of residents across nearly 3,000 U.S. counties and county equivalents.

Counties are assessed on a 100-point scoring system tied to how they perform relative to one another across 10 health-related categories, ranging from education and the economy to community vitality, equity, infrastructure and public safety. They receive a ranking based on their performance as well.

These are the 25 counties out of the 500 ranked that scored the highest overall, making them the Healthiest Communities in the U.S.
