Poorest women’s life expectancy declines, finds report

25 February 2020 – BBC News

A report by Prof Sir Michael Marmot shows that life expectancy among women living in the poorest communities in England has declined since 2011.

Overall, life expectancy growth has stalled over the past decade – for the first time in 100 years.

The largest decreases were seen in the most deprived areas of north-east England, while the biggest increases were in the richest parts of London.

Similar trends can be seen across the UK, according to the report.
