LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- A new report finds Oldham County the healthiest place to live in Kentucky.  On the other end of the study, people in Floyd County lead the least healthy lives.

Among the factors considered were the rate of people dying before they're 75 years old, high school graduation rates, unemployment, access to healthy food, water quality, income, and rates of smoking, obesity, and teen births.
