We can only read the headlines on The Mercury front page.  The headline says “Riley Ranks 12th Out Of 98 Counties”.  There are 105 counties in Kansas.  Therefore, we must if we are 12th out of 98, are there 7 more better than all the rest?  That would rank Riley at 19th.  Hmmm…....

The seven counties that are not ranked are too small to have reliable measurements for health outcome measures.  The counties that were not ranked were:  Comanche, Greeley, Hodgeman, Kiowa, Lane, Stanton, and Wallace.
