Life expectancy among Delta residents trails national average
New analysis found the average life expectancy in counties and parishes across the Delta region trailing the national average by four years for men and two years for women.
The data, which provides county-by-county analysis of life expectancy figures reported by the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington last week, provides a snapshot of the region’s challenge to provide access to basic care to communities from Southern Illinois to Louisiana.
