The poor live longer in Costa Rican than in US

Friday, January 8, 2016


If you’re poor in Costa Rica, you’ll probably live longer than your relatively poor counterparts in the U.S., according to a new study. If you’re rich, though, you’re better off in the U.S.


The findings, published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, are striking because of the large difference in living standards between the two countries — especially at the lower end of the income spectrum.
