Life expectancy higher in Israel than in US, according to Ben-Gurion U. researcher
Date:10/13/2010

widely used indicator is infant mortality, which aggregates information about health outcomes over the entire life cycle and focuses on the survival of infants during the first year of life. In 1960, infant mortality rates were nearly identical for Israeli Jews, Americans and residents of the other OECD countries, while the Israeli Arab rate was approximately double.

Since that time, all countries have shown substantial declines in infant mortality, from more than 25 per 1,000 live births to fewer than 10. Yet, the decline in Israel is greater than that for the U.S. and slightly exceeds that of the rest of the OECD.

"Arab Israelis have experienced the most significant decrease in infant mortality from over 50 to less than 10 per 1,000 live births, which can be directly attributed to Israel's preventative healthcare services, particularly those dealing with OB/GYN and pediatric services," Chernichovsky explains.
