(KSL News) Utah ranks in the top 20 when it comes to women's health issues, but that doesn't mean the state is doing well.

A report from the National Women's Law Center found only nine states rank above "unsatisfactory" when it comes to women's health issues. Utah is not among them.

The report looks at 27 benchmarks, including the percentage of women who have regular mammograms and those who see a dentist each year. Utah is also criticized for having the lowest number of women who go for cholesterol screenings. The report also points out the state's large number of chlamydia cases.

However, Utah does have the lowest number of lung cancer cases in women in the nation.
