Every year the United Health Foundation releases its “America’s Health Rankings Report”, which ranks each and every US state from least healthy to healthiest. The rankings are determined based off the prevalence in each state of four key health issues: obesity, smoking, diabetes, and physical inactivity. After obtaining the four categories of information, they are able to create a decent picture of how healthy the state is overall. It's funny to see that sometimes you are your surroundings, considering the majority of people in a state are doing similar things with their health.

Some of the healthiest states might surprise you, and some of the least healthy states might surprise you as well! It's always a little fun competition to see where your state ranks compared to friends and family, if they live in another state. Do you consider your state to be an overall healthy state? Well, let’s see how your state stacks up, shall we! Without further ado, here are the rankings for 2015: (spoiler alert—if you don’t have time to read all the way to the bottom, Hawaii is officially the healthiest state!)
