Life expectancy in Washburn County is 76.7 years, according to a Wisconsin Department of Health Services study that looked at life expectancy over a four-year period from 2010 to 2014.

The life expectancy of a population describes how long the members of that population are predicted to live, given a particular set of conditions. 

Life expectancy has applications in a number of areas, including actuarial practice; demography; industrial design and market analysis; and population health. 

This publication focuses on life expectancy as an indicator of the health of Wisconsin residents and how it relates to the economic aspects of population health in Wisconsin.
