A recent NPR, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) and Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health poll of more than 1,600 workers in the United States revealed that more than four in 10 working adults (44 percent) believe their current job has an impact on their overall health.
We’ve painstakingly culled a list by analyzing and comparing five studies: a heart-health study from the Centers for Disease Control, a best-paying opportunities jobs list from U.S. News & World Report, a Well-Being Index jobs study focused on depression rates, an overall well-being jobs study from CareerCast and a fitness/activity-level study from the CDC.
Taking into account both your mental and physical health, use our results to help determine which jobs are the healthiest opportunities around. Counting back from 20, with 1 being the most healthy, is your chosen profession on this list?
