With the new year, people start thinking about dieting and developing better overall health habits. Want to know which regions of the nation started out the year as the most and least healthy—and by what measures? Turn to new maps prepared by the Agriculture Department and click on the state(s) of interest. Agency scientists have mapped—by state (and the District of Columbia)—indicators of nutritional health as compiled from nationally representative survey data for everyone from infants to adults. For easy comparison, each state's values appear next to those for the nation as a whole.
