New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg has just announced that New Yorkers, on average, are living much longer than the rest of the country.

A New Yorker born in 2010 is now said to have a life expectancy of 80.9 years- 2.2 years longer than the national life expectancy, which is currently said to be at 78.7 years.

In just 11 years, New Yorker’s life expectancy has increased by 3 years; the national average life expectancy, on the contrary, has only gone up by 1.8 years.

According to the data released by Bloomberg and NY’s health department, women in NYC are expected to live to 83.3 years of age while men are expected to live to 78.1 years of age.

“Not only are New Yorkers living longer, but our improvements continue to outpace the gains in the rest of the nation,” says Bloomberg.

“Our willingness to invest in health care and bold interventions is paying off in improved health outcomes, decreased infant mortality and increased life expectancy.”
