As the report notes, the United States ranks 27th in life expectancy among the 35 countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). Data from the District of Columbia was included in the report but not in the rankings. The report found that several northeastern states that are largely considered healthy have recorded large increases in drug deaths.
According to a new study, Oklahoma has shown some improvements in smoking rates and obesity rates.
Frieden, now president and CEO of the group Resolve to Save Lives, said, "Increases in cardiovascular deaths and drug overdoses can be reversed, but it will take concerted action by government, health systems, communities and individuals". Air pollution has also decreased, and the percentage of children younger than age 18 who were living in households at or below the poverty level decreased for the second year in a row. "Even the top US state in each of these measures ranks toward the bottom among OECD countries". The state with the largest rank decline, however, was North Dakota, whose rankings for smoking, Salmonella and immunizations among children all declined this year.
Dr. Georges Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association said that we do not have an all-inclusive system. "Massachusetts is proud to have the lowest number of uninsured residents in the country and robust public health efforts, and our administration will keep working across all levels of government to ensure quality healthcare and a safe, healthy environment for our residents to live, work and play". Utah, ranked fourth, had a 10 percent increase in cardiovascular deaths.
