DETROIT -

A new list lays out where each county in Michigan stands in terms of health.

Leelanau County ranked as the healthiest county in Michigan, according to The County Health Rankings.

The list is from a collaboration between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.

The ranks of the big three counties in metro Detroit varied greatly.

Oakland County ranked 22nd, while Macomb County came in 43rd. 

Wayne County ranked 82nd, which was last on the list.

The county health rankings are based on factors like unemployment, drinking water safety, smoking habits and various other categories.
