State of Health in Pennsylvania

According to America’s Health Rankings 2016 report, Pennsylvania ranks 28th in the nation for overall health. Benefits of living or working in the state include a high immunization coverage among adolescents, a steadily decreasing percentage of adult smokers, and a population / physician ratio that skews higher than many other states.

However, the state also has many challenges when it comes to health. An alarming number of deaths are due to drugs, with drug deaths increasing 36% from 14.6 to 19.8 deaths per 100,000 population over the last decade. The state also has high levels of air pollution, and low per capita public health funding.

Obesity is also a serious issue; over 30% of the state's population is obese, and nearly as many residents do not get enough physical activity, with the latter population segment increasing each year.
