50 Neighborhoods Where People Live The Shortest & Longest

While many may know that the leading cause of death in the U.S. is heart disease, life expectancy varies greatly by ZIP code. That’s right, zip code. You can live in one neighborhood in a city and live shorter than someone else in another zip code in the same city. For the first time in our history, the United States is raising a generation of children who may live sicker and shorter lives than their parents. Reversing this trend will of course depend on healthy choices by each of us. But not everyone in America has the same opportunities to be healthy.

In a new joint project from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics, the National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation you can see the life expectancy in your neighborhood.
