America’s Health Ranking has placed CT as the fourth healthiest state in the nation, behind only VT, MA and NH. Since 1993 CT has been in the top ten healthiest states. However performance on specific indicators varied widely. CT was the top state in recent dental visits, but 27th in air pollution and 31st in public health funding. Measures of the nation’s health used in the rankings improved by one percent from last year, however from 1990 to 2000 health measures improved by 1.5% annually.
