Hawaii has been named the healthiest state in the latest America’s Health Rankings compiled by the United Health Foundation. Vermont ranks second, followed by Massachusetts, Connecticut and Utah. Nebraska is ranked as the tenth healthiest state in the study. The Cornhusker State’s strengths are a low rate of drug deaths, a high rate for high school graduation, and a high rate of immunization among children. Among Nebraska’s challenges are its high prevalence of binge drinking and large disparity in health status by educational attainment. In the past year, Nebraska children in poverty has decreased from 19.6% to 14.3%, while adult diabetes has increased from 8.4% to 9.2% over the last two years.
