White women are dying at a slightly younger age while black men live longer; that’s according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics.
The life expectancy for non-Hispanic white women in the United States declined by one month — from 81.2 years to 81.1 years — from 2013 to 2014.
The average life expectancy for non-Hispanic black men increased by about a half-year — from 71.8 years to 72.2 in that same time period. The report says that improvement seems linked to declines in cancer deaths, homicides and heart disease.
