Our health care spending is like no other country–but our life expectancy is also middling. You can see that in this chart, where the United States spending on health care charted against life expectancy pretty much looks like no other country out there.
“While life expectancy in the United States used to be one year above the OECD average in 1970, it is now more than one year below the average,” the authors write. “Many possible explanations have been suggested for these lower gains in life expectancy, including the highly fragmented nature of the U.S. health system, with relatively few resources devoted to public health and primary care, and a large share of the population uninsured.”
We’re spending a lot on health care but, when it comes to life expectancy, not getting much back in return.
