A neighborhood-scale life expectancy map of Las Vegas, created by researchers at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Center on Society and Health with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), is the latest in a series developed to raise public awareness of how health is shaped by social and environmental factors across the United States and to support the work of local officials and community organizations to reduce health disparities.

The map offers some stark differences in health data in the city – life expectancy can differ by as much as 16 years in the nine miles that separate The Strip from southeast Las Vegas.
