Check out this new Spanish-language infographic on Latino senior health.

The infographic is based on America’s Health Rankings Senior Report, which compares the health of all 50 states to each other using 34 different measures of health ranging from smoking and obesity to ICU usage. The report also identifies disparities, including a higher percentage of obese senior Latinos compared to their white and Asian counterparts.

The report shows Minnesota at the top of the list of healthiest states for older adults. Vermont is ranked second and New Hampshire is third, followed by Massachusetts and Iowa.

Mississippi is ranked 50th as the least healthy state for older adults. Oklahoma, Louisiana, West Virginia, and Arkansas complete the bottom five states.
