Visualizing Life Expectancies

by Morgan Stevens

The Washington Post has created a series of interactive data visualizations comparing life expectancies in the United States to life expectancies in other wealthy countries. One visualization prompts viewers to enter their age. It then shows years as circles, with white circles representing their current age, yellow circles representing their remaining life expectancy, and pink circles representing the remaining life expectancy of a Japanese citizen, who can expect to live longer than citizens of other wealthy countries. According to the visualization, the United States has a lower life expectancy rate than most wealthy countries.

Take a look.
