Life Expectancy for White Americans without a College Degree Decreasing

by

 

The average life expectancy for white Americans with only a high school education has fallen precipitously since 1990. It fell five years to 73.5 years for women and three years to 67.5. College educated women have a life expectancy of 80.9, a full decade past their less-educated counterparts. College educated men live 80.4 years, nearly thirteen years longer then high school educated white men.
