Preston curve
The Preston curve is an empirical cross-sectional relationship between life expectancy and real per capita income. It is named after Samuel H. Preston who described it in his article "The Changing Relation between Mortality and Level of Economic Development" published in the journal Population Studies in 1975. Preston studied the relationship for the 1900s, 1930s and the 1960s and found it held for each of the three decades. More recent work has updated this research.
