For the second year in a row, Gallatin County has been ranked as the healthiest in the state, according to a recently released study of wellbeing.

The University of Wisconsin’s Population Health Institute conducted the study, which ranks the overall health of nearly every county in the United States by measuring how healthy people are and how long they live.

Numbers included in the report showed that a lower percentage of Gallatin County residents reported smoking than those statewide; the obesity and the teen birth rates are also lower than the state level.

Some local health-care officials, however, were slow to celebrate the announcement that Gallatin County got the top spot on the list.
