Mapping the Link between Life Expectancy and Educational Opportunity

 

A new interactive map from Child Trends allows users to explore the link between life expectancy and high school educational opportunity for teenagers in neighborhoods across the United States. Life expectancy varies dramatically across neighborhoods in the United States: While teenagers in neighborhoods with the longest life expectancies can expect to live to age 91, teenagers in neighborhoods with the lowest life expectancy should expect to live just to age 70, on average. Child Trends’ research finds that teenagers in neighborhoods with high educational opportunity live 9 months longer than their peers in neighborhoods with lower educational opportunity. This tool can help policymakers, health officials, and education officials begin to understand ways in which they might improve the health and lifespans of the children and youth they serve.
