Life expectancy according to the Tube

Life expectancy tube map

How much can your local tube station say about you? Well, probably not a lot, but it may be able to tell you a bit about your life. Our friends over at the Londonist spotted this project from UCL’s Centre of Advanced Spatial Analysis and we just had to share it with you. The map shows the average life expectancy and child poverty for each tube station. Though the majority of London does reach or excel the national average of 80.4 years, it does note that the more poverty-stricken areas have a lower life expectancy. The highest life expectancy is surprisingly Oxford Circus at 96 years, but that’s probably due to the lack of residential property rather than a result of all the lotions and potions  on sale at Liberty. Carly-Ann Clements
