The project looks at numerous factors in developing its rankings. These factors are broken into categories and statewide, Placer County ranked first in quality of life, second in health factors, health behaviors and social and economic factors and third in clinical care. Other categories include length of life and physical environment.

The health of Placer County’s residents also has positive economic benefits as employers looking for a place to locate will look at the health of the workforce. Having a high County Health Ranking makes the area more competitive as employers seek to reduce health care costs.

The Health Ranking includes almost every county in every state in the nation. The rankings reveal that where one lives has an effect on their health. It is not surprising that Placer County, with a multitude of forestland, an international reputation for its outdoor recreation and a burgeoning industry in locally grown produce and agricultural goods, would earn a high ranking.

Details of the ranking, which is compiled into the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, are available at this website: County Health Rankings.
