GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) — Where you live could play a role in how long you live.
The annual County Health Rankings were just released this week.
The report puts South Carolina’s 46 counties head-to-head for some healthy competition.
The study looks at common factors, such as smoking, obesity and physical activity but it goes beyond that — taking graduation rates, violent crime, quality of physicians, poverty, and pollution into account.
Experts say those factors, compiled, help determine life expectancies.
This is where the Upstate counties fall:
- #4: Greenville
- #9: Pickens
- #12: Oconee
- #14: Spartanburg
- #15: Anderson
- #23: Abbeville
- #24: Greenwood
- #29: Cherokee
- #30: Laurens
- #36: Union
