From the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College:
- When economic times are good, deaths in the United States increase.
- Previous research suggests that a likely culprit is poorer health habits tied to greater job demands.
- However, the increase in mortality is largely driven by deaths among elderly women in nursing homes.
- These nursing home deaths may reflect increased shortages of caregivers during economic expansions.
