Life Expectancy at Birth!

According to Measure for America (2010 calculations), the projected ages for individuals by state (including the District of Columbia) vary from a low of 75 years of age (Mississippi) to a high of 81.3 years of age (Hawaii).  There were nine (9) states in the 75-76.5 range, seventeen (17) states in the 77-78.8 range, twenty-three (23) states in the 79-80.9 range, and two (2) states in the 81.1+ range (Minnesota [81.1] and Hawaii [81.3]).  Hmm, Oklahoma was fifth from the bottom at 75.9 years of age.
