The Impact of COVID-19 on life expectancy in the US and Brazil: Disparities and Dependencies

Abstract: The US and Brazil have highest recorded number of COVID-19 deaths in the world: approximately 770,000 and 615,000 deaths respectively as of the end of November, 2021. The mortality impacts have been extraordinary, with the values of recent life expectancy setting some groups or geographic areas back to levels observed as far as two decades ago.  In this talk, we explore some of the social and racial/ethnic disparities within each country. We also consider differences in estimates of life expectancy decline within the US and Brazil that result from the untenable assumption that COVID-19 is an “independent” cause of death.
