MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minneapolis and St. Paul do not want for top ratings on various surveys of superlative civic qualities, but in case anyone needed a reminder, both earned top 10 rankings in women’s health.

According to a survey in Women’s Health Magazine, Minneapolis was ranked the sixth most healthy city in the U.S., and St. Paul was hot on its heels with a ninth-place showing.

The list was compiled from data on 38 different factors, including access to health care, obesity rates, cancer statistics and also a number of other lifestyle wellness factors like nutrition, fitness and employment.

The list was topped by San Francisco, with Salt Lake City, San Jose, Calif., Boise City, Idaho, and Burlington, Vt. rounding out the top five.

The same magazine ranked Birmingham, Ala. as the nation’s least healthy large city for women. Philadelphia was the runner up for that grim citation.
