How is our life expectancy?

How is our life expectancy?

Our life expectancy is increasing slightly less quickly than was thought.

Will you reach the age of 65 in 2023? Then you probably have 20.48 years to live from that moment on. Last year it was thought that this group of people would live another 20.74 years on average.

Why has life expectancy been reduced?
In the last four months of 2016 and the first eight months of 2017, more people have died than expected. Read here how CBS calculates life expectancy.

Life expectancy is now more than five years higher than that of 65-year-olds in 1956. At the time, the chance of turning 90 was 9 percent, today it is 31 percent.
