Working Paper #76

Life Expectancy, Health Care, and Economics

In this paper I studied life expectancy, health care spending, medical resource availability, and lifestyle issues in the United States relative to other member countries in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD). I find the United States performs very poorly relative to its peers. While the United States spends more per capita by far than any other member country, it has a lower life expectancy and fewer medical resources than most member countries.
