The CDC links the decline to the COVID-19 pandemic and 93 drug overdose deaths, a record high in one year. Homicide, diabetes and liver disease are also thought to be influencing factors.

While the national trend is alarming, in some parts of the country life expectancy is much higher than the national average. Using data from county health rankings and roadmaps, a joint program between the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin Institute of Population Health, states with the highest life expectancy were identified.

It is important to note that life expectancy rates are averages from 2017 to 2019 - the most recent period for which metropolitan-level data are available - so they are pre-pandemic. The average life expectancy in the country is 79,2 years.
