LIFE EXPENCTANCY IS 87 YEARS

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

The longest life expectancy in the entire United States is found in Western Colorado. In this area, famous for its ski amenities, residents live an average of almost 87 years. The three counties with the highest life expectancy are Summit (86,83 years); Pitkin (86,52 years); and Eagle (85,94 years), according to a 2017 study by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).

The IMHE determined that one of the factors that influences these numbers is the high income of those who live in these counties. The average family income is 70 thousand dollars per year; while the family income in the U.S. is 55 thousand dollars per year. In Westtern Colorado there is also a high level of education; access to quality medical services; short commute times; and free or low-cost public transportation.

According to the study, another factor is physical activity. The mountain life facilitates physical activity. For that reason, this region shows low incidence of obesity, which also reduces diabetes and high blood pressure. Scientifics added that these longer lives also relate to level of education, work training and good eating habits.

The experts say

As explained by Mark Salley, spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), the data for these three counties can be used as a reference for other population groups. “With this information, it is easier to understand the reasons for the disparity of life expectancy throughout the State and which changes need to be made to respond to that challenge,” explained Salley. For 2017, Colorado had a life expectancy of 78,2 years for men and 82,2 for women.

Abbey Cofsky, an expert who is collaborating with the United States Small-Area Life Expectancy Estimates Project (USALEEP), believes urban development must be planned for all people to live healthy lives. “There are lots of tools to calculate life expectancy in smaller areas every time. But what really matters is to understand that health is not just to visit the doctor. It also means to change habits and environment to favor Good health,” he concluded.
