CT fourth healthiest state
America’s Health Rankings finds CT residents are healthier than residents of all but three other states, up from 7th in the last two years. Our strengths include a very low smoking rate, low teen birth rate, and a high rate of dental visits. Our challenges are a very troubling high rate of avoidable hospitalizations, high rate of binge drinking, disparities based on educational attainment, and insufficient sleep.
