According to www.americashealthrankings.org, North Carolina was ranked 33rd in overall health in 2012 and has increased from 35th in 2011. The life expectancy is 77.19 years, which is slightly shorter than the national average of 78.7 years.
When it comes to healthcare spending, North Carolina is ranked 42nd, spending approximately $51 per person. In terms of insurance, it is ranked 34th in the country, with 16.7% of the population living without health insurance and marking an increase of over 3% in the past decade. The availability of primary care physicians is ranked 26th in the nation, with approximately 114.7 PCPs per 100,000 residents, which is slightly lower than the national average of 121.
As of 2010, approximately 15.5% of adults in North Carolina are living below poverty level. The percentage of children living in poverty is relatively high at 23.9%, ranking North Carolina 39th in the country in this category. Since 2000, the rate of adults in poverty has increased by 3.2%, while the rate of children in poverty has actually decreased from 27.6% in 2011.
Due to a moderate prevalence for sedentary lifestyle, 29.1% of adults in North Carolina are obese, ranking the state 34th in adult obesity. This number has been increasing steadily, up from 22.9% in 2002. With a ranking of 28th, North Carolina also has a moderate percentage of obese children with 12.9% of the adolescent population considered obese. Taking into account the percentage of obese individuals, it is no surprise that approximately 800,000 adults (or 10.9% of the population) are living with diabetes, ranking it 42nd in the country. This marks a steady increase over the last decade, up from 6.7% in 2002. The incidence of stroke is approximately 3.1%, which is appreciably higher than the national average of 2.1%.
With a modest prevalence of smoking of 21.8%, North Carolina is ranked 27th in the country for smoking and indicating a decrease of over 4% in the past decade. One of the best-ranked in the nation for binge drinking (7th), only 15.2% of those living in the state participate in binge drinking. Although there is a low prevalence for binge drinking, this statistic indicates a 3.2% increase since last year alone.
With the strengths being low prevalence for binge drinking and infectious disease, North Carolina is still struggling with a high prevalence for diabetes and low per capita health funding.
