For Third Year In A Row Gallatin County Is The Healthiest In The State

HappyFamilyFor the third year in a row, Gallatin County ranked as the healthiest spot in the state. Ranking last, also for the third year, was Roosevelt County, which lies almost entirely on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.

Since we moved to Bozeman in 1991, I have definitely changed the way I stay active. I would much rather walk up to “Palisade Falls” than walk on a treadmill or be stuck in a Gym. But a lot of people that live here are much more disciplined than I am that’s for sure.

Here is the rest of the research.

The county health rankings aim to raise awareness about the overall health of the county’s communities and their residents.

The county health rankings have been derived from factors not traditionally associated with health, such as education, employment opportunities, crime and high school graduation rates.

The 10 most healthy counties in Montana are Gallatin, Carbon, Madison, Missoula, Daniels, Fergus, Stillwater, Valley, Ravalli and Flathead.

The 10 least healthy counties, starting with the least well, are Roosevelt, Glacier, Big Horn, Blaine, Deer Lodge, Broadwater, Rosebud, Lake, Silver Bow, Meagher and Mineral.

The study was published by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
