Study: Bay Area residents average longer lifetimes
WASHINGTON (KGO) -- A new study shows that Bay Area residents live longer than people in other parts of the nation.
ABC7 News media partner The San Jose Mercury News reports Bay Area residents live, on average, a decade longer than people in less healthy parts of the U.S.
For women in Marin, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties, that works out to a little more than 84 years.
University of Washington researchers also found the Bay Area tops the charts when it comes to physical fitness and maintaining a healthy weight.
