A report on the health rankings of counties across the country has just been released and it shows people in Western Illinois score high, while those on the far edge of Eastern Iowa do not.

Researchers from the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation measured factors that influence health, like low birth weight or access to medical care.

Out of Illinois' 102 counties, Jo Daviess County ranks second best. Mercer and Henry counties are in the top 5. Whiteside County is ranked 18th and Rock Island County is 54th.

Of Iowa's 99 counties, Sioux County in the northwest part of the state ranked highest in overall health outcomes, but on the eastern coast, Dubuque County came in 26th, Jackson 48th, Scott was 60th and Louisa County came near last place at 95th.
