Death Rates Increasing Leading to Shorter Life Expectancy

Death Rates Increasing Leading to Shorter Life Expectancy

USA- The death rate in The United States rose from last year. 2017 was most likely going to be the third year where the death rate declined in life expectancy for Americans, this according to some preliminary data. Death rates due to Alzheimer's disease, flu, pneumonia and diabetes has risen and they are three reasons for death, according to numbers posted online by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. There is not a full year worth of data when it comes to drug overdoses, suicides or firearm deaths, but what data is available, it does show an increase as well. There was, however, a small change in the nation's number 1 killer, heart disease. Previously steady yearly drops of heart disease death rates would offset increasing rates in other reasons for death and increases, but experts are saying these offsets are no longer happening.

The Center for Disease Control National Health Statistics initial numbers were based on the first review of findings in death certificates filed the year before. However, there is often a delay in filing some death certificates when their cause of death involves the investigation by Police. A full account is expected to be available around the end of the year, this will include a number of deaths as well as the calculation of life expectancy. This will be calculated by the average lifespan of a person and also based on the year they were born, and the current factors and death trends. For many years there has been an increase in life expectancy, rising a bit every few months almost on a yearly basis. In 2016, it was the second year in a row where the US reported life expectancy had fallen, something that was rare and that only had happened two times before during the last century.

From 1916 till 1918 there was a three-year decline which was due to a period that had seen the worst flu pandemic in Modern History. Anne CAse, a Princeton University Researcher said that by looking at those numbers it is definitely very likely that the nation had tied the record. The case has done influential work in the are Drug overdoes, alcohol abuse and suicide sector, most of these patients are middle-aged white Americans. Overall the death rate has risen a little less than 1 percent, with the numbers being 734 deaths per 100,000 people. This rate also went down a bit in 2016 despite the fact that there were a number of deaths recorded that year. The fact that there was a rise in 2017 shows that life expectancy is also worsening, according to Case. There is some good news to end with, Cancer, the nation number 2 killer continues to drop in death rates associated with it, It has dropped 2 percent from 2016, along with deaths associated with blood infections and HIV. Also falling by 0.3 percent was heart disease-related deaths. Experts say that the obesity rate is most likely the main factor in falling of heart disease rates.
