Love this map from The Atlantic.
Guess I can move to Chile.
From Olga Khazan's article:
It’s worth noting that the life expectancy for certain groups within the U.S. can be much higher—or lower—than the norm. The life expectancy for African Americans is, on average, 3.8 years shorter than that of whites. Detroit has a life expectancy of just 77.6 years, but that city’s Asian Americans can expect to live 89.3 years.
But overall, the map reflects what we’d expect: People in southern states, which generally have lower incomes and higher obesity rates, tend to die sooner, and healthier, richer states tend to foster longevity.
"Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon." - Doug Larson
