New Jersey has seen big gains in life expectancy over the past three decades, according to research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. But those gains have not been distributed equally.

Life expectancy in the state varies from 77 to 82 years old, depending on in which county the person was born. Every county increased in life expectancy from 1980 to 2014, but some saw impressive increases, while others had lackluster growth. Find out the life expectancy of residents born in your county.

Disclaimer: This list is roughly in order from lowest to highest life expectancy, but because of the margin of error in the data, some counties are virtually tied.
