Life Expectancy Data Shows U.S. Hispanic Population Lives Longer

By  

The U.S. Center for Disease Control's National Center for Health Statistics has issued the first statistical study on the life expectancy for U.S. Hispanic's vs. non-Hispanic white population.

The results indicate that, on average, a U.S. resident of Hispanic origin will live 2.5 years longer than non-Hispanics.

The Hispanic origin population life expectancy at birth is 80.6 years, 7.7 years longer than for the non-Hispanic black population.

This is also longer than the 77.7 years average for the population as a whole.

"United States Life Tables by Hispanic Origin," provides life tables by Hispanic origin based on 2006 death rate data.
