The average life expectancy in the US has declined for a third straight year.New research linked that decline to the fact that "working-age" Americans, between ages 25 and 64, have been dying at higher rates.These deaths have been linked to drug overdoses, suicides, and alcohol-related diseases, among other health problems.Multiple experts agree that socioeconomic inequality and a economic hardship may have contributed to this increase in middle-age American deaths.Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Life expectancy in the US keeps going down, and a new study says America's worsening inequality could be to blame

The US is the only wealthy country in the world where the life expectancy needle is moving the wrong way. Between 1959 and 2014, the average length of time that Americans were expected to live was on the rise. Now, for the third year in a row, it's declining, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. This decline can't be linked to just one ethnicity, gender, or geographic area, either: It originates among an entire age group. Animated: life expectancy across Europe since the 1880s.

Twitter. This is really interesting. It looks like the mortality rate trend we have seen in the UK, with long-term improvements flattening or going into reverse, is happening in some US states as well. The bad news is we’re dying early in Britain – and it’s all down to ‘shit-life syndrome’ Britain and America are in the midst of a barely reported public health crisis.

The bad news is we’re dying early in Britain – and it’s all down to ‘shit-life syndrome’

They are experiencing not merely a slowdown in life expectancy, which in many other rich countries is continuing to lengthen, but the start of an alarming increase in death rates across all our populations, men and women alike. We are needlessly allowing our people to die early. In Britain, life expectancy, which increased steadily for a century, slowed dramatically between 2010 and 2016. The rate of increase dropped by 90% for women and 76% for men, to 82.8 years and 79.1 years respectively. Now, death rates among older people have so much increased over the last two years – with expectations that this will continue – that two major insurance companies, Aviva and Legal and General, are releasing hundreds of millions of pounds they had been holding as reserves to pay annuities to pay to shareholders instead.

*****USA life expectancy v health expenditure: This one chart shows how far behind the US lags in healthcare

On a certain level, that's the big test of any health-care system — and the United States is failing. According to above chart, U.S. life expectancy continues to lag far behind other developed countries, despite spending way more on medical treatments aimed at keeping us alive. The chart, courtesy of Oxford economist Max Roser, plots per-capita health-care spending against life expectancy for the world's wealthiest countries over the past 40-plus years. Each country gets one line, which plots its trajectory on those measures over time. Looking at the chart, two things become clear: As Roser notes, the big takeaway is that, in wealthy countries, more spending on health leads to a longer life expectancy. But there's a secondary finding: Not all health-care spending is created equal. That's $2,000 more per person per year than the second highest-spending country on the chart, Switzerland.
