Not surprisingly, once again this year the urban counties generally do best, while the rural ones fare the worst, especially the ones between I-95 and the coast.

I wonder how much difference of that is poor habits like smoking and eating fried foods or whether is it poverty and less access to health care.

Probably a combination of both, and a number of other factors as well. Also, I wonder how Wake County stacks up against the "desired" or ideal health standard. Being best may not be something to crow about, as our state, and the country overall, is nowhere near where we should be in regards to our health.

I am pretty surprised to see Cumberland County so low on the list. It is a HUGE business here. Besides the military, Cape Fear seems to be where most people work. Certainly most people I come into contact with at FTCC are in the nursing program. Weird. Also sort of surprised to see Moore County not in at least the top 10.

It's based on how healthy the residents are. Access to healthcare is only part of the equation (and Cape Fear Valley is no UNC, Duke or Wake Med). Apparently Cumberland County residents don't have a particularly healthy lifestyle.

True. NC is indeed a big state.
