STATS: Life expectancy for each Cincinnati neighborhood

Posted: Updated:
CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

How long do you think you'll live? Does where you live determine how long you'll live?

While no one can actually predict life expectancy, the Cincinnati Health Department (CHD) released the statistics based on 47 neighborhood groupings for the City of Cincinnati.

The findings show that Mt. Lookout and Columbia Tusculum residents live to about 88 years, which is roughly 20 years longer than residents of South Fairmount.

The average Cincinnati resident lives 76.7 years. This is about two years less than the average American.

The CHD says the findings also point to significant health differences within the community that must be addressed. For example, African American males citywide have a life expectancy nearly ten years less than their white male counterparts. The difference between African American women and white women is less, but still concerning at about seven years.

"Knowledge is power. We are going to use this information to improve the length and quality of life among Cincinnatians. The best way to improve the health of communities is through local discussion leading to action," Dr. Noble Maseru, Cincinnati Health Commissioner said.

A community roundtable event will be held Jan. 10 at 8:30 a.m. at the Community Action Agency, which is located at 1740 Langdon Farm Road. Participants will address several key questions about the issue of life expectancy and disparity. Attendees will also be able to see more extensive data on income, education and health status.

Life expectancy is defined as the estimated average number of years a person may expect to live, if mortality rates stay the same over time, and is an indicator of the health of a population. It can be influenced by a person's condition, race, sex, age, and other demographic factors.

According to the CDH, analyzing life expectancy at the neighborhood level allows researchers and community members to focus on demographic, environmental, and social factors that may influence health discrimination.
