According to health ranking website www.americanhealthrankings.com, Arkansas ranks among the bottom five states in terms of health statistics. In 2012, the state was ranked at 48th, a drop from 47th in 2011. The trouble areas in the state are smoking, diabetes and the extremely high prevalence of obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. With almost a quarter of a million registered sufferers of diabetes, the state ranks 44th in this area. The state also ranks 44th in obesity, with 700.000 adults suffering from the disease, with approximately the same number living an inactive lifestyle. The corresponding rank for smoking is 48th, with more than 600,000 active adult smokers - over 27 percent of the population. Both smoking and diabetes appears to be more of a problem in the African-American population, with 43.2 percent of the African-American population suffering from obesity and 22.7 percent of smokers. They are closely followed by the Hispanic population, out of which 31.0 percent were found to be obese, and 22.7 percent were found to be smokers.
Surprisingly however, the state of Arkansas faces very low rates of binge drinking, ranking in at 5th, with 14.1 percent of the population suffering from this problem. It is however expected that this rate will decline or remain stable with time. The problem of binge drinking seems to be more prevalent in men than in women.
The crude rates of preventable hospitalizations, the chief cause of which is smoking, has fallen from decreased from 81.5 to 79.3, indicating better awareness regarding the dangers of smoking, as well as active efforts to cut down. Similarly, rates of cardiovascular diseases dropped from 354.2 out of 100,000 to 316.5 out of 100,000. This is indicative of a marked increase in public health spending.
In the past year the percentage of children in poverty increased from 21.8 percent to 25.4 percent.
