For a Weight Watchers Point List, visit the link shown below.

This page indicates the general overall health of a state's population, as compared to the populations of other U.S. states.

Scroll down to see a table showing health rankings by state.

States are ranked here according to the general health of their populations. A state's "score" represents the percentage by which a state is above or below the national average.

These statistics were collected, analyzed, and reported by the American Public Health Association. Apparently, Louisiana has officially replaced Mississippi as our nation's unhealthiest state, while Vermont tops the list for two years running.
