People in Florida live for 80 years on average, with men having a life expectancy of around 76 and women having a life expectancy of around 82. The general life expectancy depends on the year and method of the study, as well as also on the county of residence.
Florida has some of the largest gaps in life expectancy between its counties. People living in Baker County and Union County have the shortest life expectancy, while the life expectancy for people living in Collier County is the longest in the state. This gap can be explained by several factors, including lifestyle choices, such as tobacco use, education and income level, and the quality of the available health care.
