Spanish women are amongst those who live the longest in the world’s developed nations, and can expect to reach an average age of 84.3. The figure is 81.1 when both the male and the female and population are taken into account – which is two points above the average life expectancy at birth across the 30 developed countries which were analysed by the OECD.
Details of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development’s report, ‘Health at a glance 2009’, were released this Wednesday. It puts Spain in sixth place for the population as a whole, and in fourth place as far as women are concerned. Spanish men can expect to live up to the age of 77.8.
