12 Reasons Northern New Jersey Has Healthiest Counties

One of the wealthiest counties in New Jersey has remained the healthiest county in the state, according to a recent study.

A study from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute compared 30 factors that would affect the health of New Jersey’s residents.

Mycentraljersey.com reports that Hunterdon County leads the list for the sixth year in a row. Hunterdon Healthcare CEO Robert Wise said, “This is not merely a reflection of the economic status of the community, but of the abundance and accessibility of quality healthcare services provided by the Hunterdon Healthcare network,”

According to NJ.com, other factors looked at in the study included education levels, crime rates, health care availability, and quality of the air and water. Social and economic rankings comprised 40 percent of a county’s score in the research.
