A report released Tuesday offers data about the Rochester region’s health.

The Community Health Indicator Report found that in the 13 counties around the region, smoking is higher than the national average, as is obesity.

The report also found that about two-thirds of people in the region who have high blood pressure have the condition under control. Around 74 percent of people with diabetes are managing their condition as well, the research found.
