Contrary to recent editorial opinion in the Kansas City Star Johnson County is alive and a very well.

Johnson County, Kan., is one of the easiest places to live in the United States, according to a new study by The New York Times.

The New York Times ranked counties based on six criteria: education, unemployment rate, median household income, disability rate, life expectancy and obesity rate.

Based on the metrics, Johnson County ranks 11th out of 3,135 counties in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The ranking stands in stark contrast to Wyandotte County, Kan., just north of Johnson County, which ranks in the bottom third at 2,361.
