The median Republican county has experienced sustained increases in mortality risk across every age group compared to the median Democratic county between 1980 and 2014; this manifests itself in worse life expectancy for the median Republican counties over time. Diabetes, obesity, physical inactivity, and uninsurance rates in the median Republican counties are higher than in the median Democratic counties between 2006 and 2017, and this difference is growing.
