Health Survey Reveals Present-Day Concerns, Future Hopes For Sangamon County


Sangamon County still ranks near the bottom of Illinois counties when it comes to current health… but may be in position for better outcomes in the future. 

 

The study from the University of Wisconsin and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation puts Sangamon at #81 out of 102 counties, based on current mortality rates and quality of life and health for county residents. 

 

But Sangamon does better in a separate ranking of future health factors, such as the local economy and the availability of clinical care.  On that list, Sangamon is at #22 out of 102.
