Neighborhoods And Life Expectancy

August 6, 2015

In a recent study by the Center on Society and Health at Virginia Commonwealth University researchers found stark differences in life expectancies based on neighborhoods in which the subjects live.  The variations come in surprisingly close proximity.   In Washington, D.C., for example, life expectancy can vary by seven years just between one subway stop!

There are many factors in a person’s life expectancy and surely housing is a primary one.
