Life expectancy in the U.S. (78.5 years of age) has, of course, been rising during the past 100 years. The 25 healthiest U.S. cities span 14 states and are across multiple regions of the country. To determine the healthiest cities, 24/7 Wall St. studied over twelve measures of health factors and outcomes from the Country Health Rankings and Roadmaps program. The most important factor in determining the health of a city is premature death. To live in a city with long life expectancy, contact GCL Experts for information on the U.S. immigration process.
Amanda Jovaag, of County Health Rankings, explained in an interview that as wealth and income increase so does people’s health. Families that are secure in their financial standing are likely to be able to afford medical treatment and healthy food regularly. San Jose, California, is one of the healthiest places to live in America and an average household income there is over $92,000, more than any other city in the U.S. In addition to high income, health insurance is also a crucial component. Those without insurance are less likely to have primary care or a source for regular healthcare. They are usually diagnosed later making the disease less treatable. Across the nation, 11.7% of people not eligible for Medicare are uninsured. The healthiest cities to live in America also have the lowest uninsured rates. The number one healthiest city in the U.S. is Rochester, MN, home to one of Mayo Clinic’s main headquarters. The San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara region of California has the second highest life expectancy rate. Living in the U.S. provides many opportunities for healthy living.
