List Of Countries With High Life Expectancy

Nearly all countries collect data on life expectancy as it allows them to analyze the lifespan of a newborn and gives an indication of the overall health of the population. However, at any given time, life expectancy can fall because of disease, famine, war or poor health. The higher the life expectancy, the better state the country is in.

Most of the developed countries have high life expectancy, while developing nations have lower life expectancy. However, sometimes a country can have high GDP and still have low life expectancy and vice versa is also present. And, within a country regional variations can exist where rural areas have low life expectancy compared to urban areas.

On the whole, life expectancy in most countries has increased because of better nutrition, healthcare and medicine.
