Big data project reveals the worst place to be poor in the US

The richest men in the US outlive the poorest by a whopping 15 years, according to a new big data project from Harvard University, representing the same difference as those living in war-torn Africa.

The Health Inequality Project analyzed 1.4 billion federal tax records on income and life expectancy, and found rich women, too, outlive the poor by a full decade.

There’s a significant difference across different cities, though, with low-income earners living the longest in California, New York, and Vermont, while they live the shortest in Nevada.

And while the rich are living longer, overall, the poor are seeing no increases in lifespan, meaning the gap is getting wider.

The research has been opened up as publicly-available data so you can find and use it to create new visualizations or tell local stories.;
