OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – A new study of county health rankings lists Kingfisher County as the healthiest in Oklahoma.

Kingfisher County took the top ranking thanks, in part, to its low rates of smoking, child poverty and single-parent families.

The County Health Rankings report was released this month by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.

Kay County was ranked 32nd of 77 counties in the study.
