The full report is here, but you have to pay for it.

1. Expletive deleted. Afaic publicly funded research should be freely accessible to the public.

2. Fortunately, an overlapping open-access paper is here.

3. The reported results are surprising. I’m guessing that the dependence on variables like marital status etc would also be surprising & more nuanced than the various standard sociopolitical positions.

Re: 3:

By what mechanism would marital status have an impact on mortality?

What do you mean by ‘more nuanced than the various standard sociopolitical positions’?

re: #2 wrenchwench

I’d rather ask if it might have an impact via stress, for example. Or an economic impact via, e.g., two-income households’ readier access to preventive care. (A long time ago I saw a factoid which claimed that married males live longer than single males.)

What do you mean by ‘more nuanced than the various standard sociopolitical positions’?

I suspect that social reality is complex enough that the various sides in the American culture wars will get welcome and unwelcome surprises if this kind of research, hopefully, continues in depth.

Re the complexity of social reality: Afaic this kind of research is very worthwhile and I urge that more be conducted by governments and private entities. Afaic more data and analysis is needed before conclusions can be drawn on which public policy can be firmly based. IMHO research hasn’t yet fully scoped out correlation, let alone causation. This paragraph was not meant as criticism: on the contrary.
