The Central Oregon Health Council just released its yearly report card.  The council grades Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson counties in several health areas.   Thursday researchers said having the data allows them to know what to celebrate, and what needs more work.  The numbers show Deschutes County ranks highest in the region, followed by Crook and Jefferson counties.  When it comes to living the longest, in Deschutes County, the average life expectancy is 81, Crook County is 80 and Jefferson County is 75. The top killer in all three counties is cancer.  When it comes to childhood poverty, one in five kids in Deschutes County are in such tough times, while the figure is one in four in Crook County, and one in three in Jefferson County.
