  • They completely avoid the truth. This is Reaganomics (Neo liberalism) 40 years down the road. Loss of jobs= deaths of despair by drugs, drinking, and suicide. More people being priced out of housing and lack of public housing= early death. This is the result of profits over people.

  • And your drug overdose statistics are a lie. Most of those overdoses are just people who are drinking. People who actually have a prescription rarely overdose. And the government is now killing people by taking away meds from every singleperson. There is now a cap on the mg dosage per day and it’s the same no matter how old you are. People are now killing themselves from pain and having their pain meds taking away. While heroin have went up 300%. Wtf. And pill usage is on only down 30%. Bullshit.

  • Americans have no universal healthcare, their country has an encarceration rate six times higher than Communist China, more of them are hooked on physicotrop drugs than anywhere else, and they are constantly bombarded by advertising, and their corrupt government allows them to be exposed to all kinds of deadly things which are banned nearly everywhere else (like flouride in drinking water and hormones in milk).

  • CNBC trying to put a good look on the decline of American economic equality… here in Canada with my Government run health insurance is my wall against the problems in the USA… https://www.ssa.gov/OACT/population/longevity.html

  • The problem is you must compare these numbers to those still living. I’m 72 and I’m the youngest person in our American Legion Post. Also there are people in my senior citizens club who are 90+, we have five of them. Nobody smokes in these groups which is an important fact.

  • The interesting part for me is that I saw the video and immediately started asking questions. Rather than leave my questions here, I will link this video as it is much, much better than just asking questions.


  • GREAT I love Rosling’s presentations!!
    A techno question (sorry for this, I’m a biologist). Can someone explain to me how is this projected? or is a post-edition?

  • I love data and global health. This video is amazing showing us the advances and the constraints in the evolution of one health index. In addition to showing health inequalities.

  • The conclusions he draws are ridiculous.We are blowing technological advance on population swarming.We are maggots avidly devouring the carcass of a rat,getting fat and thinking we can invite many more to the party.This will end in tears.

  • Does the lousy and expensive insurance cover has anything to do with all these!!!! I pity those ppl who can’t even afford proper health care coz the insurance is too expensive.

    I believe US government can provide free health care for all coz my home country is actually still being classified as a third world country though in actual fact it’s not as poor as those third world countries portrayed in the western media. We have 100% free healthcare, like Cuba. But unlike Cuba, we adopt democracy.

  • Life expectancy has dropped for 3 years.
    The same amount of years Donald j Drumpf ( his real name )
    has been in the White House. How Ironic!

  • I see at 0:22 the laptop screen shows the year of 2048, I wonder what the scatterplot looks like for 2048 and the story behind it. Any predictive analytics guru here?

  • Organized hypocritical religion false teachings of white supremacy, total male dominance, second class citizenship of others, Jesus Christ was born Caucasian, extensive prescribing of opioids to a specific group of population, racism, sexism, refusal to atone for captive African enslavement, indigenous people genocide, dropping 2 nuclear bombs on Japan, extensive alcohol use, misogyny promoted by organized religion and a huge delusional ego.

  • I think many commenters missed the point of this video. Hans Rosling is trying to show the audience how effective Data Visualization can be as a communication tool if done correctly.

  • Definitely will fall even more… Poverty in US is becoming increasingly difficult and I don’t get why US should be qualified as wealthy when many of its citizens suffer a terrible standard of living. US should be in the middle of countries with average development

  • Just because you have good healthcare and good surgeons doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. More weaker babies with weaker genetics are able to live because of healthcare and those babies are passing on those weaker genetics to future generations.

  • which may be correlated with the peaking revenue trends of agricutural poisons and opioid makers like Nova chemical, Monsanto, Dupont….Johnson and Johnson….And all the fast food industries…..the popularity of open-carry, easy access to fire arms, and the copy-cat trend of mass shootings vying for the most-killed trophy.

  • I look around at work, in the store or any other public place and see grossly overweight people who just eat too much and don’t get enough exercise. No wonder life expectancy is dropping

  • The low headline unemployment rate caused by the expansion of part-time, temp, or minimum wage jobs can’t mask the rise in suicides over the last 15 years.

  • In less than 5 minutes…….. overall world analysis using statistics and number-crunching. So entertaining and dynamic. Professor Rosling flies with Data Visualization. I understand he is no longer with us….so he must be deeply missed.

  • Our USA medical system has been destroyed since 2010. Senior care is the worst it’s ever been. Prices are too high. People must choose between eating or taking their meds.

  • America is weird. Almost every country in the world adopts a central procurement policy, America doesn’t allow Medicare to negotiate drug prices, and instead allowing middleman like PBMs make billions. But the weirdest thing is, every one knows the solution but politicians don’t want to change because they are afraid of being labelled as socialist.

  • For those people who can’t seem to read data. Those countries at the bottom were colonized. If anything this shows that white people kept the majority of the world down in the poor and unhealthy box while they stole its wealth and resources to enrich themselves. And when these countries were decolonized their health and wealth all of a sudden bounced back. Shocking! Lol


  • The decline of the patriarchy has happened at the exact same time as the decline of human life, wellbeing, culture, defense readiness, mental health, hygiene, the family, Christianity…

  • Hmmmm…could it be that our “food” is full of pesticides, GMO’s, preservatives, artificial ingredients and sugar?
    Or maybe it’s a “modern” medical system that totally discounts the origins of disease yet looks to “find things early” and treat everything with synthetic chemical agents?
    Western allopathic medicine touts itself as the only health authority and has all the clout and power of the government to enforce its agenda.
    We are starting to see the results of that agenda…not only are Americans sicker (and on more medications) than ever, they are living shorter lives.

  • A silly summary might help you in class:
    They all began really poor and sick, then, the Industrial Revolution impacted a lot on wealth and health growth in Europe while Asia and Africa didn’t grow at all. The First World War, Spanish flu epidemic and The Second World War had a negative impact on development in all countries. The Western countries were way healthier and richer than South American and Asian countries and Africa was stuck in civil war.. After these tragedies, the colonies gained independence and started to get healthier and Latin America and Asian started to follow up the Western countries. There is a big difference between the best and the worst countries, but every country now is following the line and trying to be rich and healthy.

    I hope this helps!
    P.s.: Im Brazilian, sorry any bad grammar.

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_and_territories_by_life_expectancy#/media/File:Life_Expectancy_by_county_in_2018.png
    You can see where the life expectancies are much lower. If those areas/states had life expectancy relative to many other states the overall life expectancy of the US will be much higher so those states are to blame.

  • We’ve have been yelling about how horrible bad it is in the USA since we lost WWII, and the evil media ignores us and marginalizes us insults us based on our skin color and love of nation. They have made it impossible for us to better our lot in life via the political process. Evil evil people we have to fight.

  • Wow, the decline in life expectancy during WWII is barely noticeable. Anybody knows why that is? Is it due to America entering the conflict in 1943?

    Fuck fast food.

  • This is amazing.. It presents a sad case for Africa, but a tremendous opportunity to do well while doing good. Simply identify the key health and wealth factors and replicate it in Africa.

  • America and the ads on TV need to stop putting ads on TV about prescription pills and other bad things the medical companies want to put in your body and focus on exercising, going out for a hike and eating moderate proportions of fresh food. Most importantly drink more water.

  • I don’t believe it. We can live longer but I don’t believe life expectancy is longer.. suicide, overdose and homicide is more rapid where I’m at..then u have all those new virus coming out every two-three years.

  • Rockstar! I wish he was alive now! I wish he was my teacher! But now i gain inspiration from him, being awestruck by the magic he showcases with data and learning how i can tell such amazing broad detailed stories for such long timelines myself hoping to fit in the shoes of this great man!

  • The scary truth is our life expectancies are only low because of America is the most diverse country in the world we have all nationalities that makes us very unhealthy.
    In fact when there were only White People in America our life expectancies were at least a 100,000.
    I’m 90,036.

  • Maybe the GMO food, Fluoride in the water, Chemicals in the vaccines, Geo Engineering being sprayed in our atmosphere, Corporate run farms sprayed with pesticides, animals we eat eating GMO feed, Medical care can finish you off with the amount of medications they push onto society in general. These all contribute to a declining life expectancy in America today. I haven’t even added the level of EMF radiation we are exposed to now since WiFI, Smart meters and Smart phones.

  • India’s average life expectancy in 1947 is 34, in 2019 is 68… And suicide rates drops….. Managing a huge population happily is a good thing

  • Ohhhh booohooohoooo.. People still have better healthcare than 50-60-70 years ago. Plus, some people should not be having babies!! Fktards.

  • Because you idiots constantly push and promote abortion and gun control yet suicides and abortions are the real problem and are negatively effecting rates. And that’s not even mentioning all the poison that in the food. Its not a wonder that the places with the lowest rates have more blacks.

  • I wish my teachers were like him. More specifically if he was my social science teacher I would have taken humanities lol. But this is not just a lesson of inequalities and poverty, it is a lesson of how to present things well to our fellow teachers who are still focused on online web meetings. They can learn a lot from this video I guess.

  • These “pop-culture” statistics pose a major problem in how we think. There is no mention whatsoever about whether the figures here presented are statistically significant — let alone pragmatically so. Such segments are made to inspire awe and some chagrin, yet to engineer adamantly little in the way of knowledge. As an example ( 4:00 in the video), suicide-rate is shown to be 10 in 100,000, which is equivalent 0.01%; an increase of this by 3.7% totals to.01037%; this would mean going from 1 suicide per 10,000 persons, to 1.037 suicides per 10,000.

    “Up-thumbs” on YouTube.com videos indicate nothing about the quality of content; they seem to suggest simply whether an audience has appreciated the audio-quality and graphics of a segment.


  • the world is already over populated! so in theory a 5% drop in world population would actually save the planet from killing wildlife!

  • Because life expectancy in America used to be a 100,000 it’s not a bad thing that America’s life expectancy is so low now because suicides would be a lot higher if things didn’t change.
