A recent health study finds Oregon ranks 13th out of the healthiest states in the U.S.

The study reveals Oregon residents live one of the most active lifestyles, compared to others in our nation.

The state also has the second lowest infant mortality rate.

Several factors that hurt the state's rating are the high population of uninsured residents and the lack of vaccinations.

In past years Oregon has ranked as high as 8th in the nation.
