PARIS — National statistics show that Maine’s Oxford County remains the state’s unhealthiest county for the second year in a row.

The figures compiled as part of a national study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin found that Oxford County has a high rate of motor vehicle accident deaths, violent crimes and adult smoking.

The county also has a high rate of unemployment, which can limit access to health insurance.

The countywide figures were released at a community health forum last week at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School.

The Sun Journal says the survey uses 27 indicators of health and is done once a year on a nationwide basis.
