Oklahoma's smoking rate has declined 25 percent in the past five years.

The premature death rate increased for the third year in a row. In addition, poor rankings in smoking, violent crime, public health funding, air pollution and excessive drinking landed the state in the bottom half for health in the nation.

Cardiovascular deaths increased for the second consecutive year, with the rate among African Americans significantly higher than the rate among whites, Hispanic- and Asian-Americans, and Native Americans.

According to the report, Florida and Utah "experienced the largest rank improvements since previous year", as both states rose four slots to now being number 32 and number four in the country, respectively.
