The United States has such a diverse population that these average statistics are very misleading. Most of the other countries are nearly a single race. Breakdowns by race for the various countries would be very informative.

For example life expectancy for the average population in the UK is higher than the average in the US. However when comparing only the white population the life expectancy is nearly the same for the two countries.
