UTopiAH. This is Part of a series for comparing census based life expectancy and death rate tables, ranking states by how long we live, from 1960 to 2015. Included are medical conditions rating Utah’s #1 health rankings. Since 2012 state rankings are now correlated to voting in the 2012 and 2016 presidential elections, with blue states on top, and red states at the bottom. Utopia is Sir Thomas More’s (1516) perfect place to live, and with a slight variation in spelling, perfectly describes Utah.
Part Eleven. How does Liver or Cirrhosis impact UTAH #1 state rankings of life expectancy? As noted in Part One, MSN reported Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ranked Utah #2 and #3 lowest chronic alcohol drinking risk for 2015. Excessive alcohol use greatly increases the risk of liver disease, refraining from alcohol use reduces the risk of liver disease.
Isaiah 29:14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder:
For six decades, life expectancy, was based on the census taken every ten years. States were rank ordered based on the longevity of their residents’ lives. Longevity have been the basis for commercial uses, health programs, governmental budgets, and forward planning. Commercial uses include 1) annuity tables for retirement investments, how long the annuity will be needed to provide a life time income, and hence its cost; 2) life insurance tables for payment of death benefits and when they will be due, and hence the premium; 3) long term care, and others. Health programs use include age related maladies and hospitalization. 4) Governmental budgets include Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, development, public health, education, transportation, and national security. 5) Forward planning includes water resources, urban planning, social services, and family growth,. Progress or decline in life expectancy, takes decades. For instance noting that Utah’s life expectancy ranked 6th in 1960, Utah climbed to 2nd in 1970, back to 3rd in 1980, and topped out to 1st by 1990. It is even harder to move among ranks the larger the population in the State. California’s population is ten times Utah’s. California’s life expectancy ranked 19th in 1960 census, climbed to 14th in 1970, 18th in 1980, and dropped back to 32nd in 1990
