Life expectancy in the U.S.

As of 2016, the average life expectancy at birth in the United States was 78.69 years. Life expectancy in the U.S. had steadily increased for many years but has recently dropped slightly. Women consistently have a higher life expectancy than men but have also seen a slight decrease. As of 2016, a woman in the U.S. could be expected to live up to 81.2 years.

Leading causes of death

The leading causes of death in the United States include heart disease, cancer, unintentional injuries, chronic lower respiratory diseases and cerebrovascular diseases. However, heart disease and cancer account for around 44 percent of all deaths. Although heart disease and cancer are the leading causes of death for both men and women, there are slight variations in the leading causes of death among the genders. For example, unintentional injury and suicide account for a larger portion of deaths among men than they do among women.
