According to Alliance for a Healthier Indiana, LaGrange County is one of the top 10 healthiest counties in the state. The agency provided statewide health related statistics for Indiana’s 92 counties. Stats reflect the 2017 calendar year.

LaGrange County is ranked eighth in overall health in the state. In the four county area, next is Steuben at 21, Noble at 43, and DeKalb at 59.

The overall study shows that Indiana was ranked 38th out of 50 states in the nation in overall health.

Although LaGrange is the healthiest in the area, LaGrange County residents smoke more than people in Steuben, Noble and DeKalb counties. When it comes to opioid use, Steuben County is highest in the area. Statistics indicate that 82 out of every 100 people in Steuben County had opioid prescriptions in 2017. Alliance for a Healthier Indiana says that LaGrange County only 23 people out of 100 were prescribed opioids, 77 in Noble County, and 69 in DeKalb County.
