Public safety interventions and healthy diets contributed to significant mortality declines caused by illness in the early part of the 20th century. Medical advances and behaviour changes in people turned the tables on these diseases from the beginning of the 1960s and mortality gains have been motivated primarily by improved diagnosis and control of diseases since that time.  In spite of the gradual decrease in global mortality, ethnic and socio-economic disparities remain. Females live longer than males whereas Hispanics and the whites live longer than blacks. However the biggest disparity in life expectancy reflects educational achievement differences: on average people with college or advanced degrees live longer than people with a secondary degree for 10 years.
