Marin has been ranked the healthiest of California’s 58 counties because of its high scores in quality of life, clinical care, and social and economic factors, according to the recently released 2022 County Health Rankings & Roadmaps.

The rankings place greatest weight on longevity, or life expectancy. The average Marin resident can expect to live 85.2 years, among the longest in the state and nation. The report highlights specific factors that support health and longevity at a community level. Marin ranks highly in almost all areas, including access to high–quality health care, clear air, water, green space and healthy foods. Marin has been ranked no. 1 for 12 of the 13 years the rankings have been compiled.
