A new study indicates that where you live on Long Island may play a role in how long you live.
The analysis by the Associated Press looked at how demographic variables affect longevity. It found that life expectancy on Long Island may be tied to location.
Statistics found that Americans who have higher incomes live longer, and that less schooling leads to a shorter life.
Newsday reports that the data shows life expectancy is 73.2 years old in North Bellport. In Wyandanch, it's 77.4 years, and in West Babylon the average life expectancy is 83.6 years. It's 92.9 on Shelter Island.
