Title: American Delusion: Life Expectancy and Welfare in the United States from an International Perspective
Author: Soares, Rodrigo Reis

Abstract: Recent increases in mortality are at the forefront of the public health debate in the US. This paper takes a comparative international perspective and documents the poor relative performance of life expectancy in the US. We characterize its age and cause of death profiles over time and estimate its welfare implications. We show that this poor performance is not recent, not restricted to very particular causes of death, but mostly driven by adults and older ages. We calculate that recent welfare gains could have been 19%-28% higher had the US been able to reproduce the OECD life expectancy performance.
