According to health ranking website www.americanhealthrankings.com, Kentucky has a very low ranking in terms of health statistics. It was ranked 44th in 2012, maintaining its rank from the previous year. The state ranks 40th in terms of obesity, with over 1 million adults - 30 percent of the population 0 suffering from the problem. In Kentucky, obesity is more prevalent among non-Hispanic blacks at 42.5 percent than non-Hispanic whites at 31.8 percent.
The major challenges for the state are a high prevalence of binge drinking, high rates of air pollution, high rates of infant mortality, increases in the number of children living in poverty and a low rate of coverage through immunization as well as a high prevalence of smoking, a high rate of preventable hospitalizations and a high rate of cancer deaths. The state has the largest rate of smoking in the United States, with more than 973,000 adult smokers. Surprisingly, however, the rate of binge drinking is low and Kentucky ranks 9th in terms of health issues linked to binge drinking. The problem of binge drinking seems to be more prevalent in men than in women.
The state of Kentucky also ranks poorly in terms of other health factors, including prevalence of a sedentary lifestyle and diabetes. Kentucky ranks 43rd out of 50 in terms of smoking and 41st out of 50 in terms of diabetes prevalence rates, following a ranking system in which a higher rank indicates a lower prevalence. The crude rates of preventable hospitalizations, the chief cause of which is smoking, has fallen from 115.3 to 110,2, indicating better awareness regarding the dangers of smoking, as well as increasing amounts of public health spending. These still remain the highest rates in the country.
The strong points of the state are low incidence of binge drinking, an increase in the immunization coverage, low violent crime rate and a low rate of uninsured population as well as a low occupational fatalities rate.
