World Life Expectancy

:eek: Lots of crazy statistics pics of life expectancy around the world as well as diseases. I haven't dove around much on this site yet, but it looks like there's some intriguing stuff.

Not much about that surprises me for the most part.

Don't move to Alaska unless you want to commit suicide...

Life expectancy in Aberdeen in Scotland is the lowest in the UK. It's something like 53 for men and 55 for women.

I wonder why Afghanistan has one of the lowest life expectancies. :scratch:

At first I thought it was because of the war (I was watching in 2000) but it's lilac or blue since 1970. The only country in the middle east so bad off. :/

I just did a huge research project for my statistics class on life expectancy. Long life expectancy was found to be consistently linked to high literacy rates and low unemployment rates. I believe Afghanistan has something like a 28% literacy rate and unemployment is staggeringly high at around 40%.

There's this place called Kerala in India. They have to be one of the poorest places in the world, but they have close to 100% literacy and very low unemployment, and their life expectancy is around 70 for both genders. Interesting stuff.

Of course, this is statistics, so the link could be purely imagined.

I'm uncertain as to the accuracy of this, as the life expectancy of aboriginals is much lower than that of most white australians, a fact that doesn't really seem reflected in our statistics.

short people can't pickpocket you?
Haha.

No, it's because men are (generally speaking) taller, and males are also (generally speaking) less likely to have a purse, and more likely to just lump money in their pocket as loose change.
