I’d heard recently that American women’s longevity, which for so long exceeded men, was beginning to wane and men were catching up.
That is what this map suggests.
I found it on the Daily Dish with some interesting analysis.
What I noticed about the map is that the locals where women’s longevity is taking the greatest hit also seem to be the rural Red States that have been voting Republican. This raises lots of cause and affect questions for me.
