Collin County named the healthiest county in Texas

Collin County cracked the top 50 for the country as well

Texas doesn’t have the best reputation when it comes to health, mainly because of the cuisine throughout the state. However, a new study has proved that to be wrong, especially in one part of DFW. The study found that Collin County is the healthiest county throughout Texas and 50th for the entire country.

U.S. News recently unveiled their list of the 500 healthiest counties in America, and while many thought Texas wouldn’t be found on the list, many counties throughout the Lone Star State made the cut. To find the results, U.S. News looked at 10 factors for each county; Community health, Health, income, education, and social equity, Education, Economy, Housing, Food and nutrition, Environment, Public safety, Community vitality and Infrastructure.
