Life Expectancy (Both Sexes)
Life expectancy at birth indicates the number of years a newborn infant would live if prevailing patterns of mortality at the time of its birth were to stay the same throughout its life. Humans live on average for 32 years in Swaziland and 83 years in Japan. Average life expectancy has grown from around 26 years in the Bronze Age to 48 years in 1955 and 67 years in 2010 and is expected to reach 73 years in 2025. Since 1960, average life expectancy has increased by more than 25 years in Turkey or South Korea, for example. Women tend to have a lower mortality rate at every age and about 90% of individuals aged 110 are female.
