Some measures the website countyhealthrankings.org uses to calculate each state's county-by-county rankings are high school graduation rates, access to healthy foods, rates of smoking, obesity and teen births.

The study provides valuable information to all counties in all 50 states and helps communities evaluate the many influences on health impacts in their areas.

The study is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Public Health Institute.

Here are some other notable Michigan rankings, from most to least healthy county:

1. Leelanau
3. Livingston
5. Clinton
8. Oakland
21. Eaton
23. Gratiot
57. Ingham
73. Saginaw
80. Genesee
82. Wayne
83. Crawford
