How the Covid-19 Pandemic Widened the Life Expectancy Gap between Men and Women in the US


According to data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, women in the United States can expect to live nearly six years longer than men. This disparity has been driven by deaths from Covid-19 and drug overdoses, leading to the widest life expectancy gap in decades.

Overall life expectancy in the US fell more than two and a half years since the start of the pandemic, declining to 76.1 years in 2021. Both men and women have been affected, but women’s life expectancy remains longer.
