Average life expectancy set to increase by 2030 – Science Daily

An article by Science Daily which describes how life expectancy is expected to change among highly developed countries by 2030.

Key findings:

Average life expectancy is set to increase in many countries by 2030.

Life expectancy will exceed 90 years in South Korea by 2030. May be due to a number of factors including good nutrition in childhood, low blood pressure, low levels of smoking, good access to healthcare, and uptake of new medical knowledge and technologies.

The results also revealed that the USA is likely to have the lowest life expectancy at birth in 2030 among high-income countries. May be due to a number of factors including a lack of universal healthcare, as well as the highest child and maternal mortality rate, homicide rate and obesity among high-income countries.

The UK’s average life expectancy at birth for women will increase from 82.3 years in 2010 to 85.3 years in 2030. This places them 21st in the table of 35 countries (compared to 22nd in 2010).
