A national survey reveals Indiana ranks 38th when it comes to the health of its population. The report from the United Health Foundation shows Indiana ranked 36th last year. The drop comes as a result of more Hoosiers living without insurance and a rise in obesity in the state.
The survey reveals more than 23% of Indiana‘s population smokes and the state has high levels of air pollution. It also cites a high percentage of children living in poverty at more than 26%. Vermont residents are considered the healthiest. People from Mississippi are at the bottom.
