A recent report showed that per capita spending on Public Health (47th place) and excessive drinking rate (1st place) have landed the state of Wisconsin a meager 23rd place among U.S. states. The annual report known as America's Health Rankings shows a decline from 7th in 1990 to a low of 24th place in 2015. All rankings since 2013 have been 20th or lower.
