Saratoga Ranked Among New York’s Healthiest CountiesWritten by staff Report
ALBANY—In the County Healthy Rankings & Roadmaps program, which compares the health between the counties in New York state, Saratoga County, the state’s fastest growing county, ranks highly as one of the healthiest. The counties were ranked by health outcomes - the measurement of the county’s health as a whole, and by health factors, which views the future health of the county based on data such as services available and resident behaviors. Saratoga ranked fifth in health outcomes and third in health factors while Fulton and Hamilton are ranked No. 56 and No. 56 for health outcomes and No. 50 and No. 22 in health factors, respectively. Albany County and Schenectady County ranked No. 30 and No. 39 in health outcomes, but both are expected to improve as they ranked No. 10 and No. 15, respectively, in health factors. The County Healthy Rankings & Roadmaps program is a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
