This study will investigate the differences in life-expectancy of African-Americans in a poor rural area in North Carolina with that of African-Americans in a poor urban area in Harlem, New York. African-Americans living in poor rural areas tend to have better life-expectancy than African-Americans living in inner-city urban areas. Conventional wisdom has hinted that this might be linked to health care resources that are more available in rural settings than in the inner-city. A missing part of the scenario, however, is that rural African-Americans have higher employment rates and therefore may have more health insurance than their inner-city counterparts. This study will look at the interplay between employment, health insurance, and mortality differences among poor urban and rural populations.
