Asian Americans Live Longer than U.S. Average

The Wall Street Journal runs a fascinating story with surprising claims, based on a report by the Social Science Research Council:
Asian-Americans in New Jersey live longer, earn more and are better educated than other residents of the Garden State.
They have a life expectancy of 91.8 years in New Jersey, compared to 79.7 years for the state's general population, according to a study run by the Social Science Research Council, a New York City-based nonprofit. For the entire U.S., the average Asian-American lives 87.3 years.
