State of Health in New Jersey

However, there are challenges. A low per capita public health funding is amplified by a large disparity in health status by educational attainment. In the past three years, drug deaths increased 103% from 6.9 to 14.0 deaths per 100,000 population.


There is a high prevalence of physical inactivity, nearly 10% of the population is diabetic, and over 10% also experience mental and or physical stress. 245 deaths out of 100,000 people in New Jersey are cardiac related.
