In What U.S. County Did Women's Life Expectancy Decline the Most?


July 1, 2011 By

Walker County, Ala.

While life expectancies increased for men in all but a half-dozen U.S. counties, life expectancy for women declined in hundreds of counties. Women in Walker County, Ala., have seen the worst decline in life expectancy in the United States over 20 years, dropping by nearly two years. The study's authors theorized that an increase in female obesity and smoking, as well as related chronic diseases such as heart problems, may have hindered women's life expectancy. Birmingham News
