The state of Kansas has a low prevalence of binge drinking. The state ranks 16th in terms of binge drinking, with 17 percent of the population prone to the problem. As a result, Kansas ranks among the top twenty states where the problem of binge drinking is low. The problem of binge drinking seems to be more prevalent in men than in women.
The state of Kansas ranks averagely in terms of other health factors, including rates of smoking and diabetes. Kansas ranks 30th out of 50 in terms of smoking and 37th out of 50 in terms of diabetes prevalence rates, following a ranking system in which a lower number indicates a better position.
The crude rates of preventable hospitalizations, the chief cause of which is smoking, has fallen from 88.3 to 67.4, indicating better awareness regarding the dangers of smoking, as well as active efforts to cut down. Similarly, rates of infant mortality have dropped from 6.3 to 5.4 deaths per 1,000 births. The public health spending has increased over the years but it is still very low compared to the rest of the country.
In the past year the percentage of children in poverty increased from 8.9 percent of persons under age 13.1 to 21.1 percent, indicating a worsening of the situation. Kansas was one of only a few states in the United States where this had happened.
The strong points of the state are the low prevalence of binge drinking, low prevalence of low birth weight and the relatively high rates of high school graduation.
The challenges however are the low rates of education and the rapid increase of the number of children under poverty. They also include low per capita public health funding, limited availability of primary care physicians and the high occupational fatalities rate
