Forsyth County is ranked as Georgia’s healthiest county for the sixth straight year.


The 2018 County Health Rankings, released Wednesday, again showed affluent suburban counties as Georgia’s healthiest.

After Forsyth, which is northeast of Atlanta, the next four are Oconee, Cherokee, Fayette, and Gwinnett counties. They are followed by Columbia, Cobb, Harris, Paulding and Coweta.

Those Top 10 are the same as last year’s, but in slightly different order.

The ninth annual rankings are produced by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. The rankings look at factors other than medical care, such as education, transportation and poverty, that influence how long and how well people live.
