Montgomery County has been ranked in
the top five percent of healthiest counties in the Unites States for 2020 by
US News & World Report. Out of 2,884
counties, Montgomery County ranked 140, Chester County ranked 168, and Bucks
County ranked 292. The study covers counties and county-equivalents like Louisiana
parishes, the District of Columbia, and census areas in Alaska.
US News & World Report worked with independent experts and the University of Missouri Extension Center for Applied Research and Engagement Systems, which collected and analyzed the data. The Aetna Foundation was involved in funding the project.
Counties were evaluated on the basis of 84 metrics in ten categories. Individual weights were assigned to each category:
- Population Health 14.2%
- Equity 12.23%
- Education 2.15%
- Economy 11.1%
- Housing 9.5%
and Nutrition 8.8%
- Environment 8.6%
- Infrastructure 7.5%
