Deschutes County is getting a "clean bill" of health so to speak. An intensive National County Health ranking shows Deschutes County in the top tier in Oregon for how healthy people are.  Deschutes County Health Spokesman Tom Kuhn says the County did especially well when measuring health behaviors: “It must mean that we have a lower percentage of people who smoke who that are obese that drink excessively. It sounds like some of the preventative messages that we try to get out there in public health are effective. Of course, Deschutes is very well-known that for physical activities and things of that nature. People around here tend to be very active and try to lead healthier lifestyles." Other Central Oregon counties did not do nearly as well.  Crook County was in the middle of the pack at number 14; and Jefferson County ranked at the very bottom of the 33 counties that were measured in Oregon.” This is the second year that the University of Wisconsin Popular Health Institute has done the "Health Check-Up'. Overall; Benton County was the healthiest county in the State for the second year in a row.
