We need to be shocked into action about why wealth still dictates life expectancy

30th November 2015 06:16

This article responds to the the release of the Marmot Indicators 2015.

Mason highlights that IHE plots both life expectancy AND the years you can expect to live free of a disability. 

'As you would expect, people live longer in richer neighbourhoods. But the clearest inequalities are found when it comes to disability. A man in Blackpool – the poorest neighbourhood – could expect to live 55 years without disability. In Wokingham, the richest neighbourhood, you are, on average, going to reach the age of 71 – a difference of more than 16 years.' - Paul Mason
