Life expectancy


We have been collecting and reading a lot of information on life expectancy

We want to find out what age people with learning disabilities die

We found that people with learning disabilities die younger than the general population

We found that people with more severe learning disabilities die a lot younger than people with mild learning disabilities

 

 

We found that women with learning disabilities tend to die younger than men

However better studies are needed in the future to confirm these findings
