States were ranked on a scale of 2 through 8, with 8 as the healthiest. Only New Hampshire secured an 8 rating. 

Connecticut was rated a 7 out of 8 along with New York, Delaware, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island and Washington, according to the Hartford Business Journal. 

The study ranked the states on a range of criteria from public funding to HIV screening. The Nutmeg State was docked points for not requiring HPV vaccinations and for not vaccinating half of the population for the flu, the Hartford Business Journal said.
