How long are people in your local area likely to live? A huge new database has the details, by census tract
How long is someone expected to live who was born in your neighborhood between 2010 and 2015? A huge new database has the answer, unless you live in Maine or Wisconsin (the data is not yet available for those states). The United States Small-Area Life Expectancy Estimates Project, released today, is a joint effort of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics, and the National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems.
