Date:3/1/2012

8 years for men and 2.5 years for women).

Other states with the largest disparities (more than eight years) for men were New Jersey, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Illinois. States with the largest disparities for women (more than six years) were Illinois, Rhode Island, Kansas, Michigan, New Jersey, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Florida and Nebraska.

Other states with the smallest disparities (less than six years) among men were Kentucky, West Virginia, Nevada, Oklahoma, Washington, Colorado, New York and Arizona. In Kentucky, West Virginia, Nevada and Oklahoma, the smaller disparities were due to a combination of black men living longer than the national average and white men having shorter lives than the national average.

Among women, states with the smallest disparities (less than four years) were New Mexico, New York, West Virginia, Kentucky and Alabama. In all these states, black women lived longer than the national average and white women lived shorter lives.

The study was published in the February issue of the journal Health Services Research.
