A national organization has ranked counties across the US for health factors and health outcomes, and according to their findings St. Lawrence County lands near the bottom of the list for New York state.
The county ranks 60th in health factors — availability of grocery stores and other issues — out of the state’s 62 counties.
It also ranks 55th in terms of actual outcomes, a measure of early mortality, obesity and other factors.
Clinton County also ranks low — coming in 47th.
The unhealthiest county in the Empire state is the Bronx.
Essex, Hamilton, Warren and Saratoga Counties all fare much better, landing in the top twenty.
