March 21, 2013 (Kentucky Health News) A new report of the national county health rankings shows several
Kentucky counties have improved in the last two years while others have
gotten significantly worse.
For the second year in a row, Oldham County ranked best in health
outcomes, and Floyd County ranked worst this year, but the statistical
differences among closely ranked counties are so small that they are
subject to error margins. The rankings recognize that by placing the
counties into quartiles, or fourths, of the state's 120 counties.
