On average, Americans die sooner and experience higher rates of disease and injury than people in other high-income countries, says a new report from the National Research Council and Institute of Medicine. The report finds that this health disadvantage exists at all ages from birth to age 75 and that even advantaged Americans - those who have health insurance, college educations, higher incomes, and healthy behaviors - appear to be sicker than their peers in other rich nations.
A new report from the National Research Council and Institute of Medicine compares the health of the American population with that of 16 high-income countries that include Australia, Canada, Japan, and many western European countries. The report explores health outcomes beyond mortality rates and is the first to look comprehensively at multiple diseases, injuries, and health-related behaviors across the entire life span.
