Let’s just say that I should live a long and full life. Well, according to this recent study released by the advocacy nonprofit NC Child. Each year they analyze all 100 counties in North Carolina and based on various health and welfare rates in each county, they determine the life expectancy of a child that grows up in a particular county. The Charlotte Observer created the original graph, pictured above and have also created an interactive version here.
And to be cheesy, may you live long and prosper. That’s what you need to know about North Carolina for today. That and this other news:
