Study Reveals Wide Income, Racial Inequality in Orange County
Orange County continues to find itself among the healthiest counties in the Tar Heel State.
The University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recently released the annual County Health Rankings, which had Orange County coming in second place in overall county health in North Carolina this year behind only Wake County.
This positive ranking is overshadowed, however, by the fact that the county has the largest income inequality for a county with more than 100,000 residents in the state.
Communications manager for the Orange County Health Department Kristin Prelipp said this distinction is nothing new for Orange County.
