A new report from a non-profit Division of United-Health Group determined which U.S. State is the healthiest – it’s Hawaii.
The survey takes into account 35 factors and examines them by state. The factors include lifestyle behaviors, the community and environment, and state-level public policy.
Hawaii is joined by Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont and Utah as the five healthiest.
The five least healthy are Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.
The report has been conducted every year for almost three decades by the United Health Foundation, a nonprofit division of United-Health Group, which also owns the insurance companies United Healthcare and Optum.
