HEALTH OF THE NATION

LAS VEGAS GETS RANKED 7TH MOST UNHEALTHY CITY IN THE U.S.?!

The results shown by BetterDoctor.com consumer insights researcher Divya Raghavan, an expert on using technology and data to improve personal health, have given Las Vegas the title of “7th Most Unhealthy City in the Nation.” 

Okay now—how exactly does BetterDoctor.com evaluate each state’s health or lack thereof? The website is a free consumer healthcare tool for finding a “great” doctor. The site evaluates cities across the U.S. based on:

GENERAL HEALTH & PHYSICAL FITNESS
Population data was examined for each city’s overall general health: exercise rates, eating habits, chronic health problems and disease rates, access to parks and recreational activities, and more.

~With Vegas’ almost year-round access to incredibly beautiful weather, on any given day, Vegas locals can be seen running, hiking, playing sports, and swimming of course, and playing sports on the many parks throughout the Valley that offer baseball, soccer, volleyball, basketball, skateboarding courts and more on many more calendar days than folks from other areas of the nation where weather simply does not permit. 

% OF HIGHLY-RATED DOCTORS
A seven-variable algorithm was designed by BetterDoctor.com to assess the percentage of doctors within each state that are “highly rated”.

~There are some very reliable websites that offer ratings on physicians, with patient reviews, board certifications, awards, education and training. If “highly rated” is in reference to the more reliable sites, as well as possible peer reviews, then this criteria would generally be trustworthy.

# OF RESIDENTS WITH HEALTH INSURANCE
Statistics regarding health insurance were consistent with the number of residents more likely to seek medical attention.

~Based on the assumption that folks without insurance coverage are less healthy and leading less healthy lifestyles, one can count or discount this portion which made up at least one-third of the results of this “healthy cities index”.

That said—let’s see where everyone else fails or succeeds…
