Sarah Best

5th March 2020

Here is an interesting long read about life expectancy.

As well as discussing ways to remain fit and healthy and live a long life (simply, moderate but regular exercise and eating well), the article highlights how life expectancy has changed in the UK and also globally.

It is reported that the average life expectancy of people in the UK is 81.2 years, compare this to India, which is 69.3.

This article could be used Family and Households (demographic trends, life expectancy).
