MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Today’s toddlers in Wisconsin can expect to live until they’re about 80.
That’s according to the state Health Services department. It says the average life expectancy for those born between 2009 and 2011 is about 82.5 for girls, and just under 78 for boys.
The data was included in a larger summary on death rates in Wisconsin.
It said 37 people died in 2011 from injuries on the job – way down from 57 such deaths the year before. But the numbers of infant deaths rose by 9 percent, to 427 statewide.
