Top 15 Healthiest Counties in Ohio

In a report released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in conjunction with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, Auglaize County was ranked as one of the Top 15 Healthiest Counties in Ohio. Auglaize ranked 11th in the Overall Rank of Health Outcomes and 9th in the Overall Rank in Health Factors.

To determine the ranks, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation uses information based off of Length of Life and Quality of Life for the Health Outcomes rank and Health Behaviors, Clinical Care, Social and Economic Factors, and Physical Environment for the Health Factors rank. In comparison with the neighboring counties of Allen, Hardin, Logan, Mercer, Shelby, and Van Wert, Mercer was the healthiest, Auglaize was the second healthiest, Van Wert as the third healthiest.
