A NerdWallet study published May 19 on cities where residents pay more for life insurance because of lifestyle factors contained erroneous information and is being withdrawn. The study analyzed each city for factors such as health and smoking habits, as well as the likelihood that drivers will get into an accident. However, due to an error in data analysis, cities were matched up with the wrong data in a way that compromised the integrity of the study.
