Trust More, Live Longer

Last update on: Oct 29 2018

A study of survey data concluded that Americans who trust the government and others are likely to outlive less trusting people.

Miething says that people who live in communities where more residents tend to show distrusting attitudes were also likely to have shorter lifespans. “In those contexts, your risk of dying is higher than in places with more community trust,” he notes.

The results were similar for both men and women, and didn’t seem to change much regardless of socioeconomic status or education level.
