Eau Claire County Among Healthiest Places In The State

A U-W Madison study ranks Waukesha County the most healthy county in the state, with Ozaukee and Eau Claire counties rounding out the top three.

The study tracks typical health factors such as diet, frequency of exercise and air quality. It also looks at secondary factors such as poverty levels, rates of divorce and high school dropout rate.

A Waukesha County health official says residents shouldn't become complacent with their top ranking, saying there's always room for improvement in eating and exercising habits.

Milwaukee County ranks near the bottom, 65th out of the state's 72 counties
