ATLANTA (AP) -- If you're 65 and living in Hawaii, here's some good news: Odds are you'll live another two decades. And for a good chunk of those years, you'll likely be in pretty good health.
Hawaii tops the charts in the government's first state-by-state look at how long Americans age 65 can expect to live and how many of those remaining years will be healthy ones.
Mississippi was worst, with about 17 1/2 more years and nearly seven of them in poorer health.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released the estimates Thursday.
