Denver is the 24th healthiest out of 60 Colorado counties, according to this year's County Health Rankings from the University of Wisconsin's Population Health Institute. The rankings take into account overall health and health factors, such as smoking, drinking, obesity, mental health care, etc.

  • Douglas ranked 1st
  • Broomfield ranked 4th
  • Boulder ranked 5th
  • JeffCo ranked 12th
  • Arapahoe ranked 15th
  • Adams ranked 30th
