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.

The application deadline is March 17, 2008. For more information, visit http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-CE-08-004.html.
