A federal report released on Wednesday revealed that there has been a precipitous drop in the average life expectancy in America for the second consecutive year. In 2019, the average American was expected at birth to live to 78 years and 10 months. That figure dropped to 77 years in 2020. Now, the life expectancy for the U.S. population stands at 76 years and one month — the lowest it has been since 1996.

This statistical drop constitutes the biggest two-year decline in a century.
