The National Association for Public Health Statistics and Information Systems (NAPHSIS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) have jointly released data from theĀ United States Small-Area Life Expectancy Estimates Project (USALEEP).

Using interactive data from RWJF, users are able to look up the life expectancy estimate for their neighborhood and see how life expectancy in America compares. The site also provides resources that can help you work with others in your community to provide opportunities so everyone has the ability to live a long, healthy life.
