New Jersey’s Health Standing Revealed Unveiling Its Ranking on the Latest List of Healthiest States in the U.S


In a new study, the United Health Foundation says that the health of the country is not very good.

But at least things are getting better for your state.

New Jersey is ranked 13th in the country for health in 2023 by the foundation, which looked at more than 80 measures from dozens of data sources.

Dr. Ravi Johar, chief medical officer for UnitedHealthcare, said, “New Jersey has the best climate policies in the country.” “And opposed to the national trend, there’s a low prevalence of multiple chronic conditions.”

In terms of how much fruit and vegetables people eat, the rate of frequent mental distress, and the number of years lost to early death, New Jersey is also one of the top five states.

The study says that from 2020 to 2021, the early death rate in the Garden State dropped by 10%.

The study shows that New Jersey can do a lot better, though. This state is in the bottom 10 for a lot of things, like the number of primary care doctors and the number of people who get screened for colon cancer.

The study also says that the number of murders and the cost of housing in New Jersey has gone up.

Eight chronic diseases were found to be at their highest levels since the report started keeping track of them. They were arthritis, depression, diabetes, asthma, cancer, cardiovascular diseases, chronic obstructive lung disease, and chronic kidney disease.

The number of early deaths rose by 9% from 2020 to 2021, which was the highest number the study could find.

“America’s health is probably worse than it’s ever been,” Johar stated.

The study said that the healthiest states in the country are New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Connecticut, and Minnesota. Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Louisiana were at the bottom of the list.
