A List: The Healthiest & Unhealthiest Cities In The USA

When it comes to our health, we can stay active and make good choices with our diets, but location matters, too. Where we live plays a big part in how healthy we are and a new report reveals where people are the healthiest in the country

  • WalletHub just released their annual list of the healthiest and unhealthiest cities in America.
  • They compared 182 of the most populated U.S. cities on 41 key indicators of good health in four main categories:
  • Health care - including things like the cost of a doctor’s visit and mental health counselors per capita
  • Food - including farmer’s markets per capita and share of obese residents
  • Fitness - including the cost of a gym membership and fitness centers per capita
  • Green space - including a city’s walk score and quality of public parks
  • Based on these factors, San Francisco is once again the healthiest city in the U.S., landing at number one for both food and green spaces.
  • As for the unhealthiest city, that’s Brownsville, Texas, which comes in dead last for food and fitness and in the bottom three for green space and health care.
