At a community level, we can influence how long people live by focusing on the many factors that influence health, from access to nutritious foods and quality medical care to good jobs and a clean environment. Length of life can vary greatly by place, income, and race and ethnicity. In Licking County, there can be nearly 15 years difference in life expectancy depending on the census tract you are born in.

The life expectancy in Licking County is negatively impacted by the increase in drug overdose deaths in recent years.
