WELCOME TO WORLD LIFE EXPECTANCY
GET STRONGER LIVE LONGER!
LIFE EXPECTANCY is a term that seeks to apply information from the past to predict what might happen in the future. This time tested statistical average has grown in stature year after year and is now one of the leading health performance metrics in the world. It reflects the health of a country's people and is often used to measure the quality of healthcare they receive. Life expectancy at birth, from a global perspective, is the average number of years a newborn infant would be expected to live if health and living conditions at the time of its birth remained the same throughout its life. Although Life Expectancy at birth is the standard most often used, it can be calculated for any age and gender and you can compare those differences for virtually every country in the world here in various sections of the Site.
The confusion surrounding Life Expectancy as a statistical average is it considers all deaths equally. It doesn't address the underlying cause or where the death took place. Modern thought on this important subject is it loses some of it's meaning as a global or national metric to measure such things as healthcare and other important evaluative criteria without this important information.
