According to www.americashealthrankings.org, Iowa was ranked 20th in overall health in 2012. The life expectancy is 79.68 years, which is slightly longer than the national average of 78.7 years.
When it comes to healthcare spending, Iowa is ranked 40th. It is also ranked 10th and is one of the highest-ranked states in the nation for insurance. The number of people living without insurance is 11.1%, marking an increase of only about 2% in the past decade. The availability of primary care physicians is ranked one of the poorest in the nation, at 46th, with only approximately 84.3 PCPs per 100,000 residents, which is appreciably lower than the national average of 121.
Approximately 11.6% of adults in Iowa are living below poverty level as of 2010. The percentage of children living in poverty is one of the lowest, at 3.1%, ranking Iowa 6th in the country in this category. Since 2000, the rate of adults in poverty has increased by 2.5%, while the rate of children in poverty has remained relatively stable over the last decade.
Due to a high prevalence for sedentary lifestyle, 29% of adults (approximately 680 thousand) in Iowa are obese, ranking the state 33rd in adult obesity. This number marks an almost 7% increase in the past decade. With a ranking of 29th, Iowa also has a moderately high percentage of obese children with 13.2% of the adolescent population considered obese. Although obesity and diabetes are typically related, Iowa has the 8th lowest ranking in the category of adult diabetes, with a low 8.2% of the population being diabetic. Although relatively low, the percentage of adults with diabetes has increased by 2.5% since 2002. The incidence of stroke is approximately 2.4%, which is slightly higher than the national average of 2.1%.
With a modest prevalence of smoking of 20.4%, Iowa is ranked 21st in the country for smoking, which marks an increase of 4.3% since 2011 alone. Ranked 48th in the nation, 23.1% of those living in the state participate in binge drinking, which marks a significant increase of almost 6% since 2011.
With the strengths being low prevalence for child poverty, lack of insurance and low prevalence of diabetes, Iowa is still struggling with a high prevalence for binge drinking, poor per capita healthcare funding, and a low availability of PCPs.
