Healthiest & Unhealthiest Cities in America (2024)

Wallethub: “Location matters when it comes to health. Some places promote wellness by expanding access to nutritious food and recreational facilities. Others strive to keep healthcare costs affordable for everyone or keep parks clean and well-maintained. When a city doesn’t take care of these important issues, it can be hard to keep up good health. To determine which areas prioritize residents’ well-being, WalletHub compared more than 180 of the most populated U.S. cities across 41 key indicators of good health. Our data set ranges from the cost of a medical visit to fruit and vegetable consumption to the share of physically active adults. “Staying healthy is a personal responsibility, and everyone should strive to eat nutritious food, exercise regularly and look after their mental health. However, where people live can have a big influence on how successful they are at staying in good health, so the best cities are the ones that provide the greatest access to high-quality healthcare, green spaces, recreation centers, and healthy food.”
