CDC Releases Life Expectancy Data, Announces Several Research Grants

Preliminary data from CDC shows that life expectancy at birth reached a record high of 77.9 years in 2005 for the total U.S. population.

Disparities in life expectancy at birth remain among the race/sex populations, although all populations have had increases in life expectancy during the past decade. More information is available at www.cdc.gov/nchs/deaths.htm.

In other news, CDC's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control recently published two grant announcements.

The first grant will be awarded for research on injury prevention, including research on law-based interventions. The grant's submission deadline is Feb. 15, 2008, and is available at www.cdc.gov/od/pgo/funding/CE08-003.htm.

The second grant, titled "Translation Research to Prevent Motor Vehicle-Related Crashes and Injuries to Teen Drivers and Their Passengers," will be awarded for research on interventions through regulatory, legislative, or administrative channels.
