Irma Elo has received a new Robert Wood Johnson research grant for the project, Alarming Stagnation in American Life Expectancy. The project seeks to identify the sources of the recent stagnation in US life expectancy by examining the contribution of geographic variation in mortality, causes of death, and race/ethnicity to national life expectancy trends from 2000 to 2015.
