What about the alleged benefits of living in the countryside, far from urban pollution?

As for the "better healthcare", you have to be able to pay for that. So poverty certainly plays a (major?) role re. life expectancy, as it often also brings unhealthy lifestyles, dangerous work, bad cars, &c.

I'll see if I can find a map by county.

Well the alleged part.

Indeed. Not living in Murica I even forgot one: dying young from drug overdose is a very efficient way for dragging down life expectancy.
