Women’s Health Magazine named Tulsa one of the ten unhealthiest cities to be a woman.

The Women's Health research team compiled data on 38 measures of health and well-being, such as access to medical care, cancer rates, obesity rates and longevity.

The team also looked at lifestyle factors, everything from nutrition to unemployment to happiness and fitness, by using survey responses from places like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Census and the American Cancer Society.

The rankings were based on that data.

Here are the top and bottom ten:

3 San Jose, CA

4 Boise City, ID

5 Burlington, VT

6 Minneapolis, MN

8 Austin, TX

9 St. Paul, MN
