Historic Global Average Life Expectancy (1950-2024)

Since the 1950's the average life expectancy of a human being has increased from 46.46 years to 73.67 years. That is a total of 27.20 years increase in a persons lifespan from 1950 to 2024. This positive trend can be attributed to technological advancements, a better standard of living, and an increase in healthcare availability.

Understanding Life Expectancy: Factors that Affect it and its Implications on Society

Life expectancy in the light of demographics is defined as the number of years a person can expect to live, based on the year of its birth (or age specific group used in calculation).

What is Life Expectancy?

Life expectancy is an internationally recognized standard that is used to measure the overall health and well-being of a population. The metric a widely used by demographers, statisticians, and researchers as an indicator of a country's or region's standard of living and overall development. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations (UN) use life expectancy data as a measure of a country's health status and progress towards achieving global health goals.

  • Life expectancy is a statistical measure of the average number of years a person is expected to live.
  • The metric is an average, and individual life spans can deviate drastically from this average.
  • Life expectancy can vary between different populations and demographic groups, such as by gender, race, and socioeconomic status.
  • Life expectancy is typically measured at birth but can be applied to any age group.
  • Historically, life expectancy has increased over time due to advances in medicine, technology, and living conditions.
  • In the future, life expectancy is projected to continue to increase in most countries in the world.
  • A population's life expectancy has a significant impact on society, affecting everything from healthcare costs to pensions.
  • Life expectancy should not be confused with healthy life expectancy, which refers to the number of years a person can expect to live in good health.

How is the Average Life Expectancy calculated?

Life expectancy is calculated by using crude death rate (CDR) and age-specific death rates (ASDR) from population data. First, the crude death rate (CDR) is calculated by dividing the number of deaths in a given year by the total population. Next, the age-specific death rate (ASDR) is calculated for each age group in the population. The ASDR is the number of deaths in a specific age group divided by the number of people in that age group. To calculate the life expectancy at birth, the formula sums up the life expectancy for each age interval from 0 to infinity.

Life Expectancy Formula

The final formula for life expectancy at birth is e(0) = โˆ‘(1-ASDR(x))*e(x)

What affects Life Expectancy?

There is a wide varity of factors that can affect a population's life expectancy. Some of these affects people on an individual level, but can contribute to the overall life expectancy of a population from a certain country or region.

  • Genetics: Certain genetic conditions can affect a person's life expectancy.
  • Lifestyle: A person's lifestyle choices, such as diet, exercise, and smoking habits, can have a significant impact on their life expectancy.
  • Healthcare Access: People who have access to good healthcare are more likely to live longer than those without.
  • Gender: On average, women tend to live longer than men.
  • Socioeconomics: People with higher socioeconomic status tend to have a higher life expectancy than those with lower socioeconomic status.
  • Race: Life expectancy can vary by race, with some races having a higher life expectancy than others.
  • Geography: Life expectancy varies from region to region and country to country.
  • Environment: Exposure to certain environmental factors, such as pollution or extreme temperatures, can affect life expectancy.
  • Education: People with higher levels of education tend to have a higher life expectancy than those with lower levels of education.
  • Occupation: Certain occupations may be associated with a higher or lower life expectancy, depending on factors such as working conditions and stress levels.

Life Expectancy vs Lifespan

Lifespan is defined as the maximum number of years that a human can live, while average life expectancy is the average total of years that a group of people live.

Could people not grow older before modern times?

There is misperception that people could not grow older before modern times, this is however false. For example, King George III of Great Britain was born in June 4, 1738 and died January 29, 1820 and became 81 years of age. The idea that people could only become 30 to 40 years old stems from a conflation of average life expectancy and maximum age. Average life expectancy is not the same as maximum age (or lifespan), it is an indication of a group of people as a whole. Where things like mortality rate of newborns, conflicts, famines and inadequate senetaion and availability to healthcare must be taken into account. On average, people are expected to live much longer today, but an individual human can not reach a substantially higher maximum age today than in previous eras.

Life Expectancy in the Middle Ages

In medieval England, average life expectancy at birth for boys born to families that owned land was a only 31.3 years.
