A study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute ranked counties within each state by health. They considered a variety of factors in the catergories of mortality, morbidity, health behaviors, clinical care, social and economic factors, and physical environment.

Daviess ranked 48th of the 92 counties in Indiana, and Pike County ranked 88th. We have a lot of work to do to improve the health of our friends and neighbors.

Here are snapshots of data for Daviess and Pike.
