A new report shows New Hampshire is again among the healthiest states in the nation.
But health officials say there is still room for improvement.
The United Health Foundation’s report looked at a variety of health issues, including heart disease deaths, cancer rates, premature births and access to health insurance.
New Hampshire was ranked second healthiest, an improvement from third last year.
The state scored well because of its low percentage of children in poverty, low crime rate, and high use of prenatal care and immunizations.
