U.S. life expectancy varies by more than 20 years from county to county

A really interesting article was just published in JAMA on the surprising decline in U.S. life expectancy in 2015 compared to 2014. 

Life expectancy can vary by as much as 20 years from county to county in the United States. The Washington Post took it a step further and created this video and charts which might help shed a little light on this.  See what you think.
