Schuyler County is above the state average for the rate of overweight adults and children. Health data from the 2012 “County Health Rankings & Roadmaps” shows that 28% of adult residents in Schuyler County are overweight. This shows a 2% yearly increase in adult obesity statistics since 2010. These factors rank Schuyler County as 34 out of 62 in NY for Health Issues. Obesity is directly connected to a variety of short and long term health problems. Obesity increases healthcare and other costs leading to a shorter life span.
