According to www.usnews.com, the U.S. News Healthiest Communities rates nearly 3,000 counties throughout the nation, using a framework created by advisers to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Counties are ranked based on 10 categories, including population health, equity, education and economy. The second highest ranking Washington community was Jefferson County, at 140, overall.
