(Philadelphia) -- A new report finds that Chester County is the healthiest place to live in Pennsylvania, while neighboring Philadelphia is ranked as the worst.
The report was released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
The County Health Rankings report evaluates more than two dozen factors that researchers believe influence a person's health.
That includes things such as obesity and smoking, access to health care, income and education levels.
The report says the top five healthiest counties in Pennsylvania are Chester, Union, Centre, Cumberland and Snyder.
It says the five unhealthiest are Philadelphia, Fayette, Greene, Sullivan and Forest counties.
