Photos: Where in Colorado Will You Live the Longest?

Where in Colorado are you likely to live the longest?

That's among the many questions addressed by data from MeasureOfAmerica.org, which has crunched numbers for every Congressional district in America, including the seven in Colorado.

The site's treasure trove of information about each district includes details about median earnings, school enrollment, race, ethnicity and plenty of other facts.

Also enumerated: the life expectancy of the districts' residents.

We've listed Colorado districts by this life-and-death metric — and if you live in Denver proper, you may not be pleased by the ranking.

Check out the results below, featuring photos of district representatives and MeasureOfAmerica.org graphics. To visit the site, featuring a lot more places beyond Colorado's borders, click here.
