Hudson Valley health: Physical environment
How healthy is your county?
In March, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, together with the University of Wisconsin, compiled health data on nearly every county in the United States, including those in Westchester, Rockland and the Hudson Valley, analyzing criteria from adult obesity to healthy food access to education. Below, you'll find detailed information about your county, and how it compares to the rest of the region and New York State.
"Access to recreational facilities" is based on a rate per 100,000 population. "Limited access to healthy foods" measures those who live either less than one mile from a large grocery store in an urban area, or less than 10 miles in rural counties. "Fast food restaurants" shows the proportion of a county's restaurants that are fast food establishments.
