What is the average life expectancy in the United States? On average, people will live well into their 70's.  If you were born and raised in Minnesota, however; the average life expectancy is a little over 5 years longer than most.

According to an article I found in USA TODAY, if you were born and raised in Minnesota, you will most likely live to be in your 80's...right alongside people in sunny California, and right behind those in Hawaii who beat us out at 81 years.


I could be that we are listed as one of the most active states, mostly because off the Twin Cities Metro area, or that we are survivors of cold winters. Whatever the case, I'm glad I was born in Minnesota.
