A SmartAsset study from this year calculated the financial health of counties around the United States. To calculate the Financial Health Index, the study looked at debt as a percent of income, bankruptcies, poverty rates and unemployment rates. It then ranked the counties on each of the categories and then indexed each category, then added those indices together and indexed them.
