Subgroup Data on Life Expectancies from State Sources


Analysis of California data:

Table 2-2


Data from Hawaii from 1990 on life expectancy at birth for some of the Asian subpopulations are similar to the California data above in Table 2.2 with the following minor differences:

  • Slightly lower life expectancies are found among the white (Caucasian), Filipino, Chinese males, and Japanese males;
  • Slightly higher life expectancies are found among the Native Hawaiian as compared to the Pacific Islander California data (Braun, Yang, Onaka, & Horiuchi, 1996).
