More Americans are dying at a younger age than other people living in high-income countries, according to a new study.
The study looked into the role public policies play in the mortality rates in certain places.
Researchers looked at things like criminal justice, gun safety, labor, and health and welfare.
The study found state policies may influence individual behaviors with a strong link between gun safety and suicide mortality among men. It also found a link between labor policies and alcohol-induced mortality, and tax policies and deaths from cardiovascular disease.
