Data

In order to facilitate further research and reporting on health inequality in the United States, we are providing 14 formatted data tables in Excel and Stata format, along with documentation for each table. These tables contain life expectancy estimates by income and sex at various levels of geographic and temporal aggregation. In addition to life expectancy estimates, we provide estimates of trends in life expectancy by geographic area and an extensive set of commuting zone and county-level covariates.
